Love this binder!!

I know there were other threads about this, but I thought I would just post to say that I LOVE this belly binder I'm borrowing from my midwife!!! I put it on right after my shower on the night Z was born, and have kept it on 24/7 except for shower times since. I find it super comfortable and I'm SUPER impressed with how small my belly is already!! I'm only about 6lbs from my pre-preg weight at this point...which means a good 26lbs from a healthy weight...but I definitely feel like wearing this thing is making a HUGE difference in how easy it will be to regain my figure and to feel good about where I'm at along the way.

So anyway, if anyone is still thinking/considering- this binder is called the Better Binder and can be found here: http://www.amazon.com/Better-Binder-Pregnancy-Support-Belt/dp/B003DLZ1TI

I know it looks kind of funny, but it is REALLY comfortable- at least to me!!!

How long after a c/s do you think I can use this? I want the swelling to go down, etc.

I honestly have no idea, Renea! The healing process is obviously different, so I just don't know. But I have to say, I was feeling pretty weak in the sense that like coughing or whatever was putting a lot of pressure on my nether regions, which was really uncomfortable (and I had a super sore throat from all my moaning/groaning during labor)...and wearing this thing made me feel a lot more secure in general.

I am glad you found a binder you like. I have mine packed for the hospital. After the last 2 csections I put in on about 12 hours later I think. It helps with everything. You can cough and move and roll over and not feel like your guts are comming out. Plus it helps shrink everything back together.
