Return of AF-what should I be expecting..did I start?

OKay sorry but I am really curious! About 2 weeks ago on a Monday I "started" my period or so I thought. It was the old brown blood. It was not too heavy and I did not need to use a pad or tampon then I was spotting on and off but no red blood. So at the start of this week I had some red blood and I thought oh here she is :/ but it lasted only a few days it was not necessary to use a pad even-I did but it was not saturated at all just enough spotting to be annoying. What is the first period like after EBF is this normal or should I be concerned? I am still spotting but very little and its brown and really only when I wipe. Thank you ladies I am just so confused.

Mine started off that way and it is so heavy now. My dd2 is 18 mths and af returned about 14 mths. I was on the mini pill and would get 2 very heavy periods( soak through a super+ tampon and half soak an overnight pad within an hour or two) within a one mth pack. I'm not sure if the pill had anything to do with it so I'm off it now.
This was not my experience with dd1. When af returned with her it went back to how it was pre kids

My DS is only 6 months old I was hoping AF would stay away longer but I guess not! I hope it does not return heavy :/

Exact same thing happened to me at 5 months and I have not had anymore spotting or anything since then...now @ 7 months. I was surprised when I thought it was coming back, but guess it didn't really!

I spotted on and off like this until 8.5 months. My son was EBF till 7 months and he started eating solids, but is currently nursing every 2 hrs 24hrs a day (even at night *sigh*) Periods generally are irregular after they do come back, so you might get one, then not another for awhile.
