I had csection 18 days ago. Suddenly maid who came to look after went. My baby is on formula as I don't have breast milk. He needed to be feeded night every 2 hrs and need to change nappies. Is it ok if I can do that whole night as my maid not there and don't have other help too? Some people says we need to take rest at least for 1 month and shouldn't get up much and do any work. Please give some suggestions as I am so much worried.

Try to exclusively breastfeed until six months. Include a lot of ajwain, cumin, turmeric, feenugreek, bottle gourd etc helps to increase breast milk. If you are handling alone you may feel tired and of course you need some rest. Take some help from other for at least initial tone until you get set.

I was on my toes by 10 days though I had help. You can do normal work but don't tire yourself and please 18 days baby needs breast milk. Only when you keep latching and feeding breast milk supply will increase.
