Agreed, no tampons. Ever heard of Toxic Shock Syndrome? I'd be worried about the blood collecting inside you whilst you are supposed to be oozing and healing for a reason..... don't block it. Yikes

I agree with the others. I remember my doctor saying that I shouldn't wear tampons until at least 6 weeks after my baby was born.

You really need to use only pads at this point. Tampons can introduce bacteria to a spot that is trying to heal right now. You could end up with a nasty infection from it.
Congrats on the new little one!

First of all. Congratulations on the new arrival!!! :)

and you probably shouldn't until the 6 week mark. It is advised that you use pads.

Wait until after your 6 week checkup with your doctor. Give yourself some time to heal!
