I have had to get a hospital rental pump because I could not get milk from ne other pump but since I have been using it everytime I pump I get periodd like bleeding afterward sometimes for a day and sometimes for only a couple of hours.. I only pump once or twice a week I'm only trying to get a small supply stored for the times I need to go somewhere with out baby.. Is this normal she is only 5wks 2days old?

I'd still call your dr. to make sure there is nothing wrong- and it could be a few different things if by chance there is, but post-birth bleeding can last as long as 8 weeks depending on what kind of delivery you had.

has your postpartum bleeding stopped or is it really light then you have heavier bleeding after pumping?

it could just be your uterus tightening up. pumping helps to do that so thats what the bleeding might be. but i would talk to your OB or doc to make sure.
