I stopped bleeding a week ago, and then today I have been getting cramps like menstrual ones and started gushing out of nowhere. Is it possible it's a period already? Ill be 6 weeks pp on Tuesday and I was EBF until thanksgiving when my pump broke so I have been doing formula at bed time feedings. Anyone able to tell me if they know or have an idea if it could be a period or just more lochia

I'm 7 weeks pp and I just got my period a few days ago...it was very light and only lasted 3 days...so it sounds like it is very possible:-) just curious...why are your formula feeding at night instead of continuing the breastfeeding at night too? My b**bs would be waaay too full by morning! Lol

To get him used to a bottle for when I go back to work. I've also been manually extracting boobie milk into bottles for him all ghetto style lol but I only get like 3 oz

Lol I honestly just push down above the nipple and drops come out pouring. If i squeeze it from like the side area it squirts a stream for a few seconds! I was engorged also so it was coming out by squeeze or leaking. I went through 3 shirts last night in an hour !
