My period is heavier and lasts longer since I had my baby in September 2012. It was usually 3 days but now 7 days. Is it normal?

In brief: Probably normal

There can be changes in your menstrual cycle after you have a pregnancy.
If your menses are still regular and if the bleeding is not excessive with a large amount of clots it is likely normal
