My daughter is almost nine months old - I got my first postpartum period around eight months pp. We're ****l almost exclusively breastfeeding. (She just started eating a few solids a couple of weeks ago, we're not very consistent with it.) Anyway, my period was definitely my period, a bit heavier than before I was pregnant, but nothing really odd. A few days later I noticed some light pink and brown spotting; I have continuous mucus, so it was mixed with that. That went on for maybe three days or so. A few days later I noticed bright red spotting when I went to the bathroom, and then yesterday and today it's been a bit heavier and dark brown - it's almost like chocolate syrup (sorry, so gross!) and a little bit does reach my pantyliner. I feel fine. Is this normal, or should I be concerned?
