Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

I bled for 7 weeks after I had my baby. It takes a while to heal up. 
It depends on how much you're bleeding. Byt this point it should be like a really light period or spotting. You shouldn't be having heavy bleeding anymore. I'm 4 weeks pp and I'm still having bleeding that like spotting/light period. It sucks, I wish it would just stop already, but it's normal to continue to bleed for up to 6 weeks. And some women do continue to have some bleeding for 8-10 weeks.
I spotted for 8 weeks with my daughter and got an IUD in and spotted until I was almost 6 months pp, they said it was normal because of the IUD. With son I spotted for 7 weeks. The last couple of weeks it was barely anything.
i had a c-section a month ago, and i'm still bleeding lightly. if you had a vaginal birth (i'm assuming), then you can bleed for up to 8 weeks. i bled heavily until 8 weeks postpartum with my first daughter(vaginal birth)
