Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

Buy a belly bandit. How do I determine the size I need? How soon after a c section can I wear it? How often should I wear it?

YOu can put it on right at the hospital after a c-section. SOme hospitals give them to patients to help tighten up the stomach. I have a Shrinkx Hips and a belly bandit for right after I deliver. The shrinkx hips works for 8 weeks pp while relaxin is still in the system and you can put your hips back where there were prior to pregnancy!

My hospital gave me 2 of them. One was a M and one was S. The M was great right after delivery and then after a few weeks I used the S. I had that thing on for a couple of months after my c/s.
