I had dd2 a couple of weeks ago, and I'm wondering when I will be able to lift 2yo (12kg) dd1.

My scar stings if I walk too much atm so I am clearly a long way from heavy lifting! Are there any indications that I'm good to go? I'd rather not try and find out the hard way it was too early, but equally I don't want to wait 6 weeks if it isn't necessary, all the time I can't lift her she wields ultimate power as I can't force her to do anything!

I'm a month down the line and have been lifting her happily since about three weeks. We have steps everywhere to minimise the lifting actually needed. I'd start with easy lifting, like just giving her a hand up, and save the hauling her up the stairs having a tantrum until nearer six weeks!
