I bled off and on for 2.5 months after giving birth the first time. I wouldn't worry, but you should call the doc and ask about it.

If you are still bleeding bright red blood and/or haven't really stopped bleeding since the birth then yes, you should be worried. Generally the lochia (the bleeding right after delivery) is supposed to taper off and be done within 7-10 days.



I would definitely go get checked out. When I had my first girl I bled like that and had to be put on iron supplementation because I got really anemic.
