My baby is almost 8 months old and is exclusively breastfed. Since I came to work 5 months ago I pump during the day (2-3 times per day). From the time I get home until I drop her off at daycare she nurses 4-5 times with me. She gets two bottles of expressed BM at day care. She only gets one meal of solids during the day (veggie and fruit) and one of BM with cereal. On the weekends she gets no bottles (all breast), her one meal of solids and I pump once in the mornings.
Nothing has changed. In fact, she is nursing an extra time during the night...but apparently I got my first period. Except it was just spotting for a couple of days. Now its gone again.
Is the first period supposed to be like this? Is this even a true period? I'm so confused. And I don't want to call the doctor over something so silly.
