Your C-Section needs special care
1. Don’t pick up anything heavier than your baby. 2. It might sound counter-intuitive, but make sure you do pelvic floor exercises. Your lower abdominal muscles and pelvic floor muscles have weakened after pregnancy, and need strengthening. 3. Avoid constipation. Eat a high-fibre diet and drink plenty of water. 4. Compression underwear or control briefs can offer abdominal support. 5. Make sure your partner learns the Dunstan Baby Language, so they can help smooth your parenting journey.
When you plead for something over and over again and no one listens, you get frustrated, right?
A baby doesn’t scream in upset and pain for no reason at all. Never. There is ALWAYS something that sets them off. Either they are hungry, tired, need to burp, need to pass wind, or they are uncomfortable in some way. This is the reason why the Dunstan Baby Language teaches parents to understand what pre-cries mean. Once you learn the meanings, you can get in there and respond to your baby immediately. Provide them with what they are asking for, and head off the uncontrolled screaming.
