Effects of heavy lifting??

I am wondering what may happen if you have to lift something heavy during the first week and after? My husband will only be home for 4 days, then after that I am on my own with my 27lb 1yr old.. I am worried about having to lift him out of the crib every morning, and putting him in his highchair to eat. Those are really the only times I would have to lift him.. Will it mess my healing process up?

O a whole huge mess if you lift heavy things. You can mess up your boobs period during the start of your recovery pockets etc.!!! I have come up with a plan actually. What I would suggest to you is that if you have not already go get a toddler bed! My 20 month old has been in her’s since 14 mths old and does very well. Her nursery is in our sitting room (master suite is a FROG and is about 1200 sq ft by itself not including Bathroom.) in our master suite so all I had to do was get a custom wood gate ( you can also order them on ebay or elsewhere the gates I use are hard wood and really meant for my standard poodles))to keep her in her safe area. I also have a video cam set up in there so when I am not in the bedroom I can see and talk to her. Do u have stairs you need to carry the baby down? my solution for this is letting her walk the breezeway with me, then when we get to the stairs sit down and basically in inch my way on my bum with her on my lap until we make it down (of course not so hard or fast) and when she has to go up let my 14 year old when she is home do that for me. O and if the high chair can be lowered to the highest setting start teaching him how to climb in it or worst comes to worst you’ll have to put him in it on the lowest setting. Hope I helped some.

Thanks for the advice! I hadn't thought about a toddler bed yet, but I guess I will have to look into it.. My son is only 13 months, so I would obviously need the full rails, but one problem is that I know he would still crawl out and try to play during the night.. How long can you not lift anything over 20lbs?

Yuppers you can get the side rails (my 3rd daughter was his age when I put her into a twin bed!! I put the rails on it and had some toddler stairs from target so she could get down and up) although if he did slip out of the bed he wouldn’t get hurt the fall is so short. Lifting anything over 20 pounds? I would say a couple months depends on how your body is healing and such. You just have to be consistent which is a pain by placing him back in the bed each time he gets out same rule goes for the time out chair I have in my house its a pain but after repetition works in about a week.

Thanks!! I just ordered a toddler bed online! Thankfully I don't have any steps in my house.. The nurse at my PS office made it sound like it wouldn't be a big deal to lift anything over 20lbs as long as I lifted with my legs.. What about them laying on your chest when you rock them at night, is that ok to do?

Your really going to already feel like someone is sitting on your chest. Really it will be based on how youi feel, but a moving toddler I think you'll find out. Good luck with everything I will be stalking you to see what your result is and how you are doing with your recovery.

I think you can seriously risk developing a haematoma or seroma - If you have a little bleed inside where you are supposed to be healing (ie a small tissue/ muscle tear) the blood can pool in there and may also cause an infection... Something you definitely want to avoid. Also I think lifting heavy things can disturb the pocket formation as mentioned, as well as causing increased pain and delayed healing.
I think you really should take it easy. I read a post from another girl on here who had a heamatoma because she didn't rest post op and was vacuuming etc...
Take care of yourself and allow your body to heal

I have a 4 yr old little boy and when he just barely lays his head on my chest it makes me feel so uncomfortable...I don't feel pain, just not comfy. Therefore, I couldn't imagine rocking a toddler on my chest right now.
My advice is just to listen to your body and don't overdo it. Good luck!!
