healing process

How long does it take for your cut to heal? I had my baby girl naturally and was wondering how long does it take to completely heal and for the bleeding to stop?

Mine took about 2 weeks. It stops burning in about a week. I heard that if you breastfeed the bleeding stops a lot quicker. I breastfeed & my bleeding stopped at about 2 1/2 weeks.

The bleeding usually takes 2-4 weeks everyone is different and the stitches usually 4 weeks but you should wait the full 6 weeks

I breastfed and bled for the whole 6 weeks. It stopped like the day of my appointment. I don't remember about the stitches. I just kept putting the stuff on it just to be safe.

How did you ladies even keep it clean? I was told to not wash it warmth any kind of soap and it's bothering me how I don't feel clean at all.
