I have my second c-section scheduled next Tuesday, and I have a 15 month at home. My recovery from the first one was really easy, I felt back to my old self in a week or so but I took it easy when needed. This time I am a bit more worried because I have a demanding toddler to look after as well. I have help here with me for 3 weeks, but after that the grandparents for back home, and DH goes back to work. I know I am not supposed to lift my son for 6 weeks, but that is going to be impossible. What is the likely hood that 3 weeks will be long enough? He's learned how to go up the stairs, but I still have to lift him into the high chair, car seat, and his crib. Any tips from those of you that had a c-section with a toddler at home?
