Absolutely normal. You will probably find you will have a period very soon as you have stopped breast feeding. You will need to use contraception even if you are not having periods as you can get pregnant before your periods return.

How much should a six week old baby eat if breast fed?

My baby is 7 weeks old and I'm breastfeeding primarily but supplimenting formula a little. I feel like I'm feeding him constantly. He's on my breast every 2 hours except at night. he only needs one feeding between the hours of 11pm and 5am. - I think I'm only giving him 2 - 3 oz though every feeding. That makes sense because that adds up to about 20 something oz's a day- which is in the normal range. The normal range is 12 to 24 ounces of breast milk or formula in a 24-hour period, though this amount may be as high as 36 to 40 ounces.
