DD and I took a bath together everyday from day 1!
The first 4 were herbal baths. After that nothing but water. We never had a problem.
|If you are breastfeeding, it isn't a good idea to sit in a bowl of lochia and let it get all over your nipples because lochia is unclean and probably full of infectious goodies that are not good for your baby to be ingesting.
WTF? How misogynistic is it to talk about lochia being "unclean"?
: Wasn't the baby inside me with all that stuff to begin with? It's one thing if you know you have an infection, but if you don't what's the big deal? It's not like there is tons of the stuff pouring out of you at every moment. Plus if you are nursing your baby the baby is getting quite a big immune system boost right there.
I'm just commenting on the OB's statement, not the PP.
