So I just had my third child about six weeks ago and I am on my period now for the first tone since he was born....thus my be a little tmi but zip an bleeding so heavy that I an going thru a super tampon every thirty minutes and I have some blood cloud that are pretty decent sized. I don't having thus problem with my older two children. Is this considered normal or should I call my doctor

Every 30 minutes I would probably call to be safe. My first pp period I wore a super tampon an a pad for good measure lol . They can be pretty heavy and clotty but I think every 30 minutes is a bit excessive

You are still early pp... I was told if I started filling a pad within an hour to call or come in.. you could be having a late pp hemorrhage which can happen anytime between 24 hrs to 6 weeks after delivery. BUT after my second I started getting very heavy periods so it may be just that, but the amount of blood loss is not good, may deplete your iron so I would make a call regardless.
