It sounds pretty normal to me, but you would know best ;)  Is she pooping and peeing enough?  Gaining well?  Assuming yes, then it's not like she's going back to boob alot because she's not getting...

Bleeding would still be in the realm of normal, and the brown stuff could have been an old clot...but the cramping would concern me, I think.  At all my postpartum appointments, my midwife asked me...

I do find it gets better after letdown, so part of it is, I think, that my nipples feel sensitive and so the prickly letdown feeling is especially strong.  At this point it's the between-feeding...
