Question about bleeding
Hi, my little miracle was due 29/01/2016 but was actually born 01/02/2016 so only just missed out on him being a January baby!

However I still have a question which I'm hoping for help with.

After birth I was bleeding quite a lot however when checked by a midwife they said all was normal.

Now 5 days later I'm barely bleeding at all it's more like spotting, I'm not even getting cramps. Is this normal?

Incase this is important I am breastfeeding and producing a lot of milk. I've heard if you breastfeed it reduces the amount you bleed but I would have still thought I'd have more than this?

Sorry if all of the above is tmi.
I have a hospital appointment tomorrow so do plan on asking the midwives for advice however thought I'd just see if anyone could assist on here
