Bath after C- section?


Does anyone know how long you are supposed to wait to have a bath after a section? In hospital they just said no baths, I was so pleased to be leaving that I forgot to ask for how long!

I really want to have a bath with my little man

I'd wait a few weeks hon. Had 3 C-sections and always waited until a few weeks had passed.

I was told to have a bath whenever you can manage. I had to wait about 2 -3 weeks, because i couldnt manage to lift my leg high enough to get in the bath.
But if you can manage its fine.
I had a shower 2 days after my c -section couldnt wait to have a shower! lol
