I didn't have this when I had my second c-section--we actually bought it for a plane trip--but my son loves the mobigo game system. It's about $40 and has tons of different games (Mickey, Cars, Penguins of Madagascar, Toy Story, Shrek, etc). It's a touch system (kind of like a DSi, but, also has a full keyboard. All of the games are teaching games. My son loves the thing and can be entertain for hours with it. We watched a lot of TV when I had my repeat. Remember not to do too much. If you try to push yourself too far too soon, you could hurt yourself and be down for a lot longer than if you had just rested. My son is a pretty hyper child, but he was so interested in the new baby that he wanted to help a lot. So, I would let him get the paci and blankets, etc. and that entertained him, too.
