you most likely had a small tear and it possibly didn't heal right. I had that happen w ds3 and it eventually went away.

Cabbage leaves are awesome! They can be used to dry up milk by placing then inside your bra as they reduce swelling. If u r highly engorged and have way more milk than you need then using cabbage for short periods of time can reduce the swelling making your breasts way more comfortable.
Also sine cabbage is so great at reducing swelling a chilled piece or 2 in your undies feels awesome on your pp croch.
I wish I had been told all of the awesome benefits of consuming the placenta before my awful pp depression. There are tons of benefits like less pp depression, quickly contacts the uterus so I bleed less than a week, replaces iron, more energy, etc. I didn't figure it out till ds3 and it was amazing, have done it 3 times now. Putting small pieces in a smoothy is quick and easy and I can't taste it.
Wish I had known diapers aren't truly necessary. We eced w my 4th and was out of diapers by 7 months. She is the only one that doesn't have or hasnt ever had severe constipation issues.
Wish I had known that loss happens and is very common. There r a lot of things I would have done differently with my losses had I had more info.
