The question I have is about postpartum bm's (sorry, gotta ask!). I haven't had to worry about not going or anything like I had to with my last pregnancy. I've gone every day since she was born, the only thing is it's always painful and hard like I haven't gone in a couple days. Is this normal? I'm wondering if this is my body's way of getting rid of all the extra stuff it was holding onto while I was pregnant since I had to deal with constipation on and off? Has anyone else experienced this? How long did it take to go back to normal?
My second question is about nursing my daughter. The first week I'd nurse on one side, change her to wake her up, nurse the other side, then swaddle her and rock her to sleep. Well she would be pretty much asleep after nursing on the second side when I'd swaddle her. The swaddling would actually wake her up, that's why I rocked her back to sleep. I started skipping the swaddling after nursing her and just moving her to the bassinet as soon as she fell asleep and was done nursing. Which one is worse do you think? Me using nursing to get her to sleep, or using the swaddling/rocking combination to get her to sleep? She's only about 2 weeks old, so I'm more concerned about making sure she's happy now, but I know later on some things I start now will make things harder when she's older.
