I had my baby 2 1/2 weeks ago. I know while pregnant you're not supposed to sit in the hot tub, but now that I've had the baby - is it okay to go soak? :-)

I didn't have any stitches or complications...

I would think not because of the germ factor.  The warm water is a great place for bacteria so I would avoid it.

I checked this out with my dr after my c-section and she said no. I had to wait at least six weeks for a pool and I think ten for the hot tub; because hot tubs carry alot of germs.

Hello,  I would think that you will be fine..the only reason you couldnt be in a hot tub while you are pregnant is because you could over heat your baby.  Now that the baby is born I dont see why you shouldnt be able to.  ENJOY!!!   And CONGRATS on your new baby!!! Good Luck!!!
