Have or do any of you wrap your PP belly to help it shrink? I recently heard of this and wonder if it actually works and what do you wrap it with?

Yes, I bought an abdominal binder cause I have diastasis recti. It was about 3 finger widths 1 weeks postpartum. I'm only 2 weeks PP, so not much has changed with my ab split, but my belly is shrinking better than it did after last pregnancy.

I have a binder that the hospital gave me but it was so uncomfortable I bought a tank top and some spanks from the store that give tummy support. I just started wearing them and I am 4 wks PP. My incision area from my c section is a little sore tonight after wearing one all day. I'm not sure if it was the extra push on the belly or me lifting the baby in the car seat that did it.
