Flask of vodka. Haha, just kidding!

Extra breast pads and t-shirt for the first weeks until your milk flow adjusts is a great idea! Also, extra pads and undies until your lochia stops.

Just don't rush into heavy exercise. You can really damage/exacerbate damage to your pelvic floor that way. If the doctor says six weeks, take the six weeks!
