    Do what you feel comfortable with. I carried on as normal as soon as I left hospital with each baby. With ds2 we had ds1's birthday party which was a huge event as we were in Perth visiting family so made it a big affair with lots of people the week after ds2 was born. Other events in the first weeks after babies included a baptism and going to the races. Ds2 and ds3 were also only weeks old when they were baptised and they were big affairs.

    I would have declined the invite and probably distanced myself from you very soon after.
    This exactly. #sorrynotsorry
    I respect your honesty @tassiewife

    I went to one of my best friend's weddings when my Firstborn was only a week old. He may even have been 6 days old. Actually, yes 6 days.
    However I didn't have a c/s.. But I was a bridesmaid 😱 I'm not going to lie, it was hard. Especially the limo and the photo shoot etc. a lot had to go right on the day and thankfully it did - DH was able to follow us around with DS In a carrier; the dress was one of those roman style ones that I could easily pull the bodice down to feed (it was awkward, but I had privacy for feeds), and DS slept almost the entire day (very vey newborns tend to do that). I wouldn't have done it for anyone else, but I can tell you that it isn't too hard to do. Especially if your DH was there to help. No one will look at you and think you're fat - everyone will know you just had a baby and they will think you're a superhero for even being there. You can cover up with a shawl for feeds, and you can keep Bub in a bassinet with a muslin cloth over it to keep out the Germy looky-loos.
    You may have already made up your mind, but just saying, it's not as bad as you think. Worst case scenario, it's awful in the first half an hour so you leave and go home. At least you won't regret not trying at all.

    I would probably go,but would have 'escape' options if I need a quiet space to myself to feed or settle baby. I would try to have something lined up at both the ceremony or reception, even if it was just feeding in the car, & hopefully a private space somewhere at the reception.

    I'd go. I was at a 30th bday party the night after coming from hospital with my first born 😁

    I was MOH for my (only) sister 6 weeks after a c/s with #1. She had previously stated that she didn't want her 1st neice to be at the wedding "because it will take the attention away from me!" (couldn't tell me herself, told Mum to tell me). She only backed down after both sets of Grandparents, our parents, and hubby refused to attend.

    It was hard, tiring and long, but I had a lot of support from family who loved all the cuddles when trying to settle her. Sister still got the cranks when we left after the cake cutting but before her, even though I was up 3 hours before her to meet all her demands.

    7yrs later, I was bridesmaid for my SIL. Completely different experience, as she was very welcoming of having our 6mth old #4.
