When DS was born, DD was 2, and I have to say it was an amazing recovery. I think I was on my feet in about 24 hours, and feeling totally myself in about a week. DD had a few tantrums, but really the transition was fairly easy. We lived in the same city with MIL,who helped a LOT with DD, which made it much better.
Because I am ten years older, I think, it was a bit harder this time, but not too bad. Physically, I was surprised it took me more than a week to get over sore muscles etc.. I also had about two days of weepiness, but I think the hormonal adjustment is to blame. Nipples were sore for about 48 hours also (hadn't been used in a long, long time). DS and DD acted out a little bit, but not too much. In general, I feel like I, new baby, and whole family, are doing great at 1.5 weeks PP!
