    I was the same. I found it one of the more uncomfortable places to be. Possibly made worse as bub's rear facing seat had to be behind mine so you can't recline and ease the pressure on the wound.

    Neither of my babies automatically slept in the car. I did 2-3 hour car trips with both from around 8 weeks. It was pretty much hell.

    I didn't have a c section but did a nine hour drive with ds at 3 weeks old (it ended up taking 12). He handled it great we stopped every 2-3hrs for a feed and stretch and he slept all the way. We then drive back again when he was six weeks.
    I was maid of honour for my best friend when dd was two weeks old it was a massive full on day. Dd was a dream though it's a good age as she basically just fed and slept.

    You are so lucky. I drove 2m and my DD would be almost passing out from screaming
