Hi - dont't think need to be too worried about baby being close to CL. You will have a lifetime to bond with baby after CL leaves
Think this time I am super hands-off, just let CL carry cos he will want to latch if I carry him. I am almost exclusively pumping....just latch once a day for bonding. With my no.1, I latched every 1-2hrs and it was tiring. I feel more rested this time.
Curly Star - can I ask about your post-natal massage experience? Did you think it helped? Did she massage the abdomen area? I had a c-sec this time too and have not engaged a massage lady yet cos when I did it the last time, the abdomen area was left alone as it was still tender and honestly, I wouldn't be comfortable if she wanted to massage that area too. So in the end, it felt like a normal massage of back, legs, arms.
