Hi all,

Bub is 4 months old and I am exclusively pumping. I got my first period at around 2.5 months PP and Im pretty sure it was a real period as I ovulated. At around 3 months bub started sleeping longer stretches and I was no longer pumping every 3 hours over night...instead id do a 5-6 hour stretch over night but still pump every 3 hours during the day...since then I've had a period every 2 weeks.. which lasts a day or two then stops. Im pretty sure no ovulation takes place.

Im thinking this seems like break through bleeding ..like what you'd get on the pill if you miss a pill.. has anyone else experienced this ?? Is this common?

I hope you get some helpful replies.

Kind regards,
