Is that ok? I read taking warm baths with sea salt in it can help heal faster, is that true? Do any of you mommas have experience with that? My dr didnt tell me anything about not taking baths so im curious as if it could affect me in any way, im 5 days pp

I was told to take twice daily baths, with no extra soaps.
I didn't because it isn't really easy in the life of a single parent of a child with cholic.



But I was told it would be beneficial.

They told me no baths for 6 weeks, after having both of my boys.

Call your doctor and ask them.

I had a nurse visit the week after DD was born and she actually recommended Epsom salt soaks to heal faster. I'm not sure if they made a difference but I had at least one a day for a couple weeks

Epsom Salt :) You get it by all the first aid stuff - if you read the box it will tell you how much to use (although I just dump some in). It has a bunch of different uses, I think it helps hemmroids (spelling?) too if you get them and atheletes.
