The uterus continues to shrink, while a woman may feel light contractions, especially during breastfeeding, when the baby sucks intensively. During contraction the damaged surface on the wall of the uterus that arose after the rejection of the placenta, begins to drag on. With the wounds go postnatal discharge consisting of blood, tissue particles and blood secretion. Immediately after birth, the uterus weighs 1 kg. For the following six weeks she takes your normal weight – 50-60 gr. Spotting pass through the first two days. They can be quite active, more strong than in the first days of menstruation.

Fighter or “nerd” – how to raise a child?

The presence of own child any parent is tempting sometimes to think about the method, direction and character education. The realities of life often say that a more child to make a good soldier without fear and without reproach, than thin and intelligent man. How to deal with this dilemma?
