Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I am interested in using my baby carrier (and Ergo) but am concerned that wearing my LO at this point will be harder on my ab section then I need right now.
If you had a c-section when did you start to babywear?
I wore ds in my mt at 2 weeks. 1ht.
It really depends on you and how you feel. :)
I had a section and after a week, I was cleaning the house again (light chores) and could carry her in our front carrier. I felt perfectly fine. A friend of mine had a section last year and she couldn't do anything for about eight weeks. She was miserable and took so long to recover. Couldn't even carry her boy around because nine pounds (at 8 weeks) was too much for her.
There are extreme cases but about two weeks is when you're able to drive again and at least feel "normal" again.
