Postpartum belly wraps.

Wednesday, March 2, 2011

I've been considering belly wrapping after the little bean comes. Many cultures wrap their mid-sections postpartum to help support the lower back and internal organs, as well as to keep the uterus from swelling.

Product description of the Belly Bandit:
"The Belly Bandit wrap is an abdominal compression binder designed to help you get your body back to its former fabulousness post childbirth. Not only does the Belly Bandit help reduce uncomfortable uterine swelling, it aids in decreasing bloating caused by water retention, and gives additional support for Mommy's weary legs & back. For you breastfeeding moms, there's a bonus... the Belly Bandit will help you with your posture during feedings, and may help to reduce the all too common back & shoulder pain associated with breastfeeding. Ultimately, the Belly Bandit wrap will aid in getting you back to your pre-pregnancy hotness faster than ever! Not intended for use during pregnancy."

It retails for $36-45. I'm considering just going ace bandage style and creating my own belly band. I know I should find something, the results are remarkable for women who do wrap their bellies vs. those who don't. But I just don't think I can fork over the $40 for a glorified tube sock.

Did you band your belly postpartum? Or know anyone who did? Your comments would be appreciated. Oh, and your votes of course. :)
