If you are EBFing (no supplementing, no pumping), then any mucus or bleeding up to 56 days post partum is just considered to be part of your lochia and is infertile. It's not unusual for it to start and stop.

However, if you have replaced even one feed with formula or pumped breastmilk...then you have to consider it potentially fertile. And that's a bummer.

Yup like Shawna said anything up to 56 days PP is considered lochia. I had my son in June and had 2 days of bleeding in August but nothing again until he was 10 months old.
THE angry uterus likes this.
