HI! i recently gave birth September 1st and although I'm breastfeeding I got a period oct 26th. it lasted about 3-4 days- first day very light, next day bright red, next day lighter and then i believe it was over if there wasn't slight spotting. 6 weeks later on december 6th i lightly spotted for 2 days until the 7th. No pad was needed since it was so light. I am not sure what this was and if I am fertile now since this was much lighter than the last one. My daughter has begun sleeping longer stretches and i have not been keeping her as close as Ive chosen to keep up with my older children as well. Of course, this has changed and I'm keeping her close to me during the days and nights so this will go away. Advice, source quotations on this matter much welcome!
