Not abnormal: This is not abnormal. Often women will have pp periods even when nursing. In your case, you already have the history of this happening previously with your daughter. The length between periods can also change at times, depending on your hormone levels. if you are having occasional periods, even when nursing, and you don't plan on getting pregnant, I would recommend other contraception (condom).
