How long were you sore after the birth? Does it hurt to move?

How many diapers on average do you go through a day or a week?

Where did you get your nursing bra?

I was good to go after a few weeks, it didnt hurt to move after a few days after birth.

I cant recall the amt of diapers...it was 3 years ago and I was a zombie LOL.

I got the bras and tanks from target!

With my first I was sore for a couple of weeks perhaps. With subsequent pregnancies probably a tiny bit less, not much at all less. Maybe a few days. However after I gave birth the first time what I was totally not expecting was the all over muscle body aching. It didn't last too long though, just as if I'd strained every muscle in my body... Achy!

Newborns go through 10+ a day at first. Perhaps 12ish. I know they average once every 2 hours according to the baby book I read way back.

Nursing bra I can't help you with because I'm in the UK!

2 weeks it was before I was moving normally again. I had a vaginal delivery and epesiotomy, just so u have more detail.

Diapers depend if your breast feeding or formula feeding. You will go through more if you are breast feeding. The first week my son probably pood every 1-2 hours and was breast fed. It tapers down after a couple weeks. I'm expecting my 2nd any day now and have 2 big boxes of nb dipes

I had a natural labor and was fine within minutes.
Number of diapers just depends. The first week one 36 count pack. By week 2 I was using double that. That's breastfeeding them. Formula fed they were 2 packs a week. I order my nursing bras online because my size isn't carried in stores.

How long were you sore after the birth? Does it hurt to move? with first I was sore for 2 weeks. It hurt to move for the first couple of days. Second sore for 1 week. hurt to move a couple of days

How many diapers on average do you go through a day or a week? 6-8 a day they pooped after every feeding.

Where did you get your nursing bra? My mil got some at walmart or target can't remember for me. Walmart doesn't carry then in store anymore I believe target does though.

I was pretty sore the first few days, ice packs were my friend. But once the swelling went down it felt better, and it helped to sleep with a pillow between my knees.

I probably went though 6-8 diapers a day as well with my dd.

I believe my bras came from Walmart but they are not there anymore. So I would try Target this time

 Every one is diff. are you having a natural birth or c-section? i had natural with my first i was up and moving fine although i got a hemorrhoid that was HORRABLE! with my second i had an emergency c and i was bed ridden for two weeks and it has been almost 7 weeks and I'm starting to do normal things again. on average a baby should have 8-10 dirty diapers and i got my nursing bras from walmart they work GREAT dont forget about the pads. and i would get a size er two bigger my boobs got huge! i went up 2 cup sizes :D
