I have been trying to find the answer to this question but have had no luck. I want to know from anyone here when was the earliest that you used a carrier for your baby after having a c-section. I had a c-section 5 weeks ago and want to know if I can carry my baby in the carrier now. Will it still effect my stitiches or should I just wait til after my 6week check up? I just find it a lot easier to use one for going out rather than a stroller or carseat. Thank you!
If you do not hurt and your Dr. says you can carry the weight, go for it. I don't remember when I started to use one, my little one is just that too little for most things. I can't remember when the pain from the c-section no longer hurt either. I can only remember that after 3 weeks I had no choice but to get out and do things, my husband had to leave town for work and I had no one else. We had a 2 1/2 year old son and a newborn, I couldn't stay at home.
