Is it normal to bleed through a tampon and a pad?

I recently just started my period, I breastfeed only and it has been 7months since she was born. I am bleeding through a tampon and an overnight pad like every hour. It has been going on for 5 days now. I am starting to get concerned because this is a lot of blood. Has any other mothers experienced this?

Stop what you are doing and call your OB now! No that it not normal. Even if your OB dosen't think it is serious you need to have a conversation with them about what is going on. It is a lot of blood.

after 5 days of it I would call the doctor. My first period after having my son was about 10 months and it was VERY heavy but the super heavy only lasted two days.

Call your doctor, they might want you to come in and get checked out.
