alright, i know this sounds disgusting but as a chinese, i was taught not to take shower or baths after you delievery for a whole MONTH! reason??? we believe that showering can swollen the body & make u fat & showering causes arthritis in the future. we eat certain foods such as stew chicken, pork chops & all foods must be put w/ wine. i went through this process & it really helps. I have less back pains & went back to my original weight... if anyone wants to follow these, ( i know it sound sickening) but if you want to, it's up to you........just sharing with you folks!

Just curious.How are you supposed to keep yourself clean?I know that my grandmother who is now in her late 80's says that they had to wait a month before they could wash their hair or shower.Supposedly that was to keep them from somehow getting sick so they had to wait until they had healed, I don't know, but I don't think that I could follow that.Please share how you're supposed to keep yourself clean after the delivery with all the bleeding and blood clots and everything. Good luck.

starr: u are right, no shower & no washing hair. i did the same, too. well, i kept myself clean by squirting warm water in my v____a area & pat dry with damped clothe. after 2 weeks, i take a towel & wipe my whole body.......

How can that work for b___st feeding? Every meal with wine?

a little wine doesn't hurt when b___stfeeding........

Cooking with wine (or beer), the alchohol is cooked off. I don't believe the residual alcohol is enough to affect even the smallest, most fragile baby.

I thought she meant a gla__s to drink with every meal. I know a gla__s here and there is harmless. BTW I gained 45 while preg and have lost 30 10 days post partum. Showers included.
