    Default First Period and still breastfeeding

    My DD is 11 months started sleeping through the night and is eating some solids. My period has returned and has lasted 2 weeks!! There is no sign of it getting lighter either :/ Is this normal or when should I call the Dr? I REALLY did not miss this!! She is still bfing 5-6 times a day.

    Call your doc or midwife. It's normal for your first few postpartum cycles to be different from your pre-baby norm- they can be longer or shorter or heavier or lighter than usual- but a period lasting 2 weeks is more than usually unusual.
