Abdominal binders

Are you using one? How long did/will you keep wearing it? I've been wearing mine all day since Cameron was born, but I'm wondering if its doing any good at this point....

I'm using the very basic one from Babies R' Us brand. I think it's helping me out, but I'm only 5 days PP. The only complaint I have is that it seems a bit too...thin? Like, it doesn't cover enough of me. Which is frustrating, because I know I could wear it tighter around my belly, but my hips and ribs chubs poke out. =/ I only wear it during the day. Either the wrap stretches out a little bit or I can wear it smaller during the later hours... *shrugs* Which one are you using? 


The uterus takes 4-6 weeks to shrink all the way down, so I assume the wrap helps until that point. (:

I just ordered the Squeem Perfect Waist binder. I hear it's the most comfortable one on the market.

I have two. One is made by Boppy and I don't love it. It's wider I. The front than the back and it bunches up and digs I to my waist. The other is actually made for exercising, and wors better except that it makes me sweat...but I can't complain, since I only paid $5 for it at Ross.

I have one from the hospital. My OB told me to request one after my csection so it was covered by insurance. It feels great for when I go on walks or am super active but I really find it uncomfortable to wear for long. I just like it to stop the jiggly sensation! I also refused to wear maternity pants that went over my belly though so I think I just hate to have anything snug on my torso.
