Normal Postpartum Bleeding

Color: Bright red, tapering off to pink, then brownish, brownish-yellow and finally white discharge
Flow: Heavier immediately following delivery for the first 4 days, then increasingly lighter over the course of 10 days to 6 weeks
Sudden Change: A sudden increase in the amount of bleeding or a color change back to bright red may be normal if you have increased your activities too much -- too soon. If this occurs, back off completely and give your body a chance to recuperate fully before resuming your normal pace.
Clots: Initially, you may find you are passing small clots. This is normal.
Stops and starts: There are women that experience an almost complete end to their bleeding, only to suddenly start up again approximately two weeks after delivery. This may appear to be similar to a regular menstrual cycle but generally is an indication of the remainder of the uterine lining dissipating.

Don't panic yet. That actually happened to me with DD3. PP stopped, then a couple of weeks later it came back. Then that went away and I never got AF back until after a year.

Mine has stopped and started so many times this time I lost track. I won't bleed at all for a few days, then it's bright red again for a few days. I'm not worried unless it goes on past 6 weeks, then I'll talk to my dr about it.

Thanks Mamas! This was especially helpful.
