Bleeding while breastfeeding

Hi there,
I''m not sure if the bleeding I am having is normal.
My baby is 11 weeks old and I am exclusively breastfeeding.
I had the Mirena fitted on the 20th July, I had lower abdominal cramps and some bleeding, for a couple of days, which I assumed was normal.
For the past 3 days I have resumed bleeding, while mild cramps. It is not heavy bleeding, but enough to wear a pad. is this normal? or should I see my gynae?
Thanks a mil.

It is common to have irregular spotting for the first few months with the Mirena.

It is normal. The same thing happened to me when my child was 2 months.
