    It depeends on yourself, are you doing confinement? If you are then it would be after 1 month....but again it depends, some of us bathe cos' cannot stand the stickiness and also hair is too oily during the 1 month, but after give birth, pls make sure you have adequate rest and nutrition whether or not you are doing confinement

    If you are not doing confinement, then I guess wait till your wound recover whether you r hvg natural or c-section. If you are hvg c-section, then better wait till your wound is dry and you feel comfortable then you go out and all...

    I bathed 2 days after delivery, then every 2-3 days, and almost everyday towards the last week of my confinement. Baby and I slept in aircon room since day 1.

    Actually the main difference between confinement food and usual ones is the former uses more of ginger and seame oil and no garlic. But there are some food to avoid depending on which dialect group you belong to. Generally, just eat healthily.

    I agree that it depends on what you're comfortable with. Those who're really strict would wait till 30days and some 40days.

    For myself, I showered and washed my hair at the hospital and thereafter I showered everyday when I got home without the herbs.

    I bath on the second day after my discharge with the herbal bath. After that practically everyday except once in a while.

    For me 1st day already in air-con room. According to my in-laws, they say its ok for air con but fan better not. Most important dont't get cold, wrap yourself up, and I have to wear slippers around the house.

    Hi, I also take those herbal bath, i guess for singapore weather so hot, it is very uncomfortable not to bath. The stickyness may perhaps drive me depress, especially post-natal blue is rather high straight after giving birth. heehee. But i also agree with others to eat sleep well and eat well. If you really strict on not bathing, perhaps you can get those powdered shampoo. Oh yes..me and my baby start from the hospital already sleeping aircon from day 1. If you start off sleeping aircon with your baby, is better not to change the environment too often.
