I believe that the official normal is that it lasts 4-6 weeks. I had super heavy bleeding for 3 days until I passed a clot with some membrane. early period type bleeding for two weeks, consistent but lighter bleeding (like the last couple days of my period) until about 4 weeks, and spotting until 6 weeks. I think I had more bleeding than average though, because my platelet count had gone low for the last week of my pregnancy, and I pushed myself a lot postpartum.
