IS FOR PAIN

Little Treasures - - NEW­BORN DAYS -

If you had an epi­siotomy or an­other mi­nor com­pli­ca­tion, you will no doubt be sent home with some pre­scrip­tion med­i­ca­tions that are safe to use while breast­feed­ing. If not, and you find you are suf­fer­ing dis­com­fort, es­pe­cially when sit­ting, it means your per­ineum – the bit be­tween your vagina and bum – is bruised. You can re­lieve this pain by ad­just­ing your sit­ting po­si­tion, us­ing a donut-shaped cush­ion, hav­ing a warm bath or ap­ply­ing a cold com­press.
