Tmi question
By Kate0406 » Posted Feb. 13, 2016 7:05am - 633 views - 12 comments

How long did you bleed after having your baby? Jace is three weeks today and I'm still bleeding. It's not enough to fill up a pad but enough to have to use one. Both of my older boys I only bled for 8-10 days. Even with my miscarriage I only bled for 8 days. Should I be concerned? And I'm having no pain or anything. Feel free to share if you want.

Typical is 21 days, which is why they say not to do ANYTHING for 21 days but feed yourself, and your baby. I didn't know this with my first, and was up taking care of the house and going grocery shopping, etc. right after he was born. This cause me prolonged bleeding. So relax, make others take care of the house and cooking, and you just focus on recovery and feeding that precious gift of yours.

With my oldest, I bled for 12 weeks, heavy for the first 6 and then really light. My middle child I bled for 4 weeks, and my youngest for 3.

Nina will be 3 weeks on Weds and I'm still bleeding, nota lot but enough that I need a pad. I can't remember how long I bled with my first, but this seems normal from everything I've read

I bled for 5 weeks. The first 2-3 weeks it was heavier, the last 2 weeks it was pretty light.
