I had a baby six weeks ago.
I bled for about three weeks then it stopped completly for 2.5 weeks then I started bleeding again a few days ago. Before it started again I felt slightly crampy like I usually do before my period.
Is it possible to get your period back this soon while breastfeeding? My baby sleeps in 4-7 hour streches at night already. maybe thats the reason?
Or is it just PP bleeding that started up for some reason?

It could be either. I got AF back early both times (5 weeks w/ ds1 and 6 weeks w/ ds2) even though I was bfing AND it came regularly for me too.

Sarah : , mama to Lucas (8) , Ryan (5) : , Andrew (1yr) , and someone new : due early Dec.

It could be either....really no way to tell..wait about 4 weeks and see if it returns...if so, your cycle is likely back..if not....then its not...for me, i bled 5 weeks, then no bleeding, then at week 7, started bleeding again for almost 2 weeks... My midwife said that any bleeding before 8 weeks she considers PP bleeding, even if it stops and then starts up again......although, there is always the slight chance you could be in the group with sarahmae!!

Yep, it is possible. I had it all the time. Breast feeding with all four and period was back 6 or seven weeks after new baby arrived. ANIKO
