    Default Babywearing after a c-sec

    Not sure if this is the right section, mods please move if need be.

    I'm having a c-sec this time but was hoping to get into babywearing a bit more this time round. My DS was so unsettled when he was little and looking back we both probably would have benefited from babywearing!

    My question for other c-section mummas who wear their baby, when did you start? Did you have to wait a couple/few weeks till you felt you were able? I've got some src recovery shorts so hopefully they'll help me get 'back together' sooner.

    I started as soon as I got home (5 days post surgery). I use a sleepy wrap. It's worked well so far. I only had pain when I'd been standing for more than an hour. If I rest I'm fine.

    Oh thanks for that! I've got a sleepy wrap as well. Was having a go yesterday with one of my sons teddies lol

    I'm hoping my cs recovery will be easier than my horrible vb recovery. At the 6 week mark I still couldn't stand for more than 15mins at a time.

    It really depends how u feel. I had to wait a few weeks coz my scar was SO SORE, and the baby carrier I had sat exactly where my c-sec scar was (I have a bad back so bought one that had extra back support and sat mostly on your hips)

    This time round I've got a sling - so as soon as I'm up to it I'll be wearing my beautiful baby girl

    I started using my beco gemini carrier within a week of having c-section, with no problems at all. Good luck
