I had no idea what post-partum belly binding was until a friend told me about it. I went online and did lots of research and found that many cultures have been doing this for centuries. I was in my last month of pregnancy and thought, why not try it? I bought the Belly Bandit. Now, I must admit I am a sucker for cute advertising. You make anything pink and I will buy it. (I am currently working on this compulsion) My dad use to say "Paint a rock pink and she'll buy it" He's right, unfortunately! So I fell for the all the
You could really use any type of material. It just needs to be really tight and worn all the time, except while showering. I later found out that motherhood maternity sells something for belly binding. It's about $25. That's almost $25 less than the Belly Bandit.
So, moral of the story... grab a t-shirt, grab a blanket, use a sling.... use whatever you have and bind up that belly!!
