DD is just over 3 weeks and I she is refusing to sleep through the day unless it's on me. Really need to use a sling. How long do you need to wait after an emcs and which sling would you recommend that won't put too much pressure on my scar?
FWIW, I used a cotton ring sling after emcs with DC1 (height of summer) and a Close Carrier (tied higher than waist) after planned section with DC2 (middle of snowy winter). Actually with no. 2 I also used the ringsling sometimes, and even managed a mei tai, tied higher than waist (baby's legs froggied inside). Hurt my back more than when tied lower but not really a big deal with a newborn.
