Re: c-section w/ second child mommies...question

My second c-section went great and I started to heal nicely. I felt great after a week, but over did it when I thought I could pick up my 30 pound 16 month old. I only did it once and regretted it for a few days. Now that I am over 3 weeks post op, I am picking her up to go down the stairs and bedtime stuff, sometimes with the baby in the sling. I think it will just be how you feel and how your incision is. Dont be afraid to call a neighbor to help when you need someone to run over and pick someone up out of the crib. I love my neighbors and we all have had to help eachother with the kiddo's. Good luck! I hope the VBAC works for you.
