AF while BFing?

Last week, I had a few days of brown spotting, then a few days of red/pink spotting and then a day of brown. What was your first AF like? I'm not sure if this might be semi normal or what

My first af while bfing was a little odd, then only every couple months. When she started eating solid food every meal and only bf morning/night it straightened out.

That sounds about right. I got AF at 8 wks pp with all my boys. The first one was like that. I was so hopeful that she would stay away while we were bfing.

Re: AF while BFing?

Yeah, my first few cycles were random and spotty. I was taking the mini-pill back then too, which seemed to make things much more unpredictable. I'd go two months without a period and then get it three times the next month.

Now that I'm off the horrible hormones and only nursing 3 or 4 times a day, AF is pretty "normal."

My first AF didn't come until a month after my son weaned. And it was a full blown AF.

My first AF while BF was actually a fairly normal AF for me.
