My 2nd baby was born without any complications OCT 25. I stopped post-partum bleeding 2 weeks ago. Now I've started bleeding again except this looks bright red not older brown w/mucas like postpartum. On day 3 now and I've just started some cramps. Any idea if this is just cycling already or late hemoraging? It's a very small amount but BRIGHT red.<br>
I have been nursing my 2 year old and my newborn 24/7 so I know cycling already is unlikly.

The same thing happened to me -- twice, in fact. My MW thought it was within the range of normal. I did get AF back two months later, however.

I got my first PP AF about a week after my PP bleeding stopped .. and yep, it was an ovulatory cycle. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">: and that was nursing a newborn and a toddler .. *sigh*

The same thing is happening to me also, except my DD was born almost 10 weeks ago. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: I am tandem nursing as well.<br><br>
My midwife said that since Im not having pain or other problems that its probably fine. She did say I could take shepherds purse or she could call in a prescription for methergine if it goes on much longer.
