    Default DH & Skin to Skin Contact question

    Hi ladies, probably a really silly question, but it has to do with after ur CS and u r in recovery. My DH has a very hairy chest, should I get him to wax it so if DH has skin to skin contact in recovery with bub the hair won't irritate bub?

    Lol i don't know about your DP but mine definately wouldn't wax his chest haha. I never even thought about it to be honest but my kids have never been bothered by his chest hair especially as babies they just feel the warmth and thats all they want. chest hair is generally fairly soft so not much to cause irritation in my opinion. we also found it very cold in the operating and recovery rooms so my hubby never took his shirt off i just had skin to skin with both girls

    Default DH & Skin to Skin Contact question

    My DH has a hairy chest and it wasn't waxed (emergency c/s). No issues at all.

    Gosh no I wouldn't bother! DD and DS2 had skin-skin with hubby after birth (after me!) and no he didn't remove his chest hair

    Thanks ladies, I'm probably just worrying about every little detail at this stage. I don't think DH would be too willing to wax his chest even if I asked him :-)

    I would be concerned that the prickly regrowth would be more irritating to bub than a hairy chest.
