So my second son is almost seventeen months. I got my period back xmas day and it has been the heaviest of my life. I am going through a tampon an hour or so and it doesn't seem to be slowing down. Is this what I can expect from now on? It went back to normal with my first baby at around seven months. But I fed him solids at four months and night weaned by nine and nursed a lot less in general. This baby is still nursing six to eight times in twenty four hours. Does that have anything to do with it?
Mine got lighter after my kids, but the first period after each baby was terrible, much like you are describing. Maybe that's all it is and it will ease up next month? If you're still worried, calling your dr won't hurt!
