Babywearing - Cesarean Birth

Can I use the wrap after a cesarean birth?

We recommend placing Baby really high when your wear him.

In the Vertical / Seated Cradle Carry, Baby’s head should be right under your chin. Tie the final knot in your back, without crossing or spreading fabric on your hips.

If the C-section is planned: take the wrap with you to the hospital so that Dad can use it to have skin-to-skin contact with Baby.
He just needs to unbutton his shirt.

As soon as you get the green light from your doctor and you’re healing nicely and don’t feel too tired, if you need to wear Baby in the wrap, give it a try.
