Kiteladies - when did you get back kiting after birth?

Postby BernieTomic1 » Wed Dec 06, 2017 9:57 pm

How long after giving birth did you feel comfortable going out on the water again?
Was breastfeeding a factor, i.e. would giving 6 months of exclusive nursing be a problem in regard to the ability to kite?

Don't be shy, girls. :-)
I am asking for a relative who loves kiting, but is talking about staying off for 6 months because of nursing.
Is that really what it takes? Any positive experiences with kiting while nursing?
Apparently the recommendations would be to stay off taxing sport acitivity for 6 weeks after birth, but of course we are all different, and I would imagine that some people kite already at that point, or earlier.

My ex was back to sports (vertical and horizontal) after 3 months. I would think that’s a good rule of thumb. She’s not going to be trying KGB’s is she?

Did she nurse at 3 months?
Was that an issue?

This girl is quite new to the sport. No KGB.

Hehe. I like that you went for it on the KGB.

She nursed for more than 8 months. As remember it, the key was lots of comfortable but firm support. She was not a kiteboarder though. Lots of tennis and running. I’m not sure why nursing is a concern? In terms of using a wetsuit or something else?

I am yet to get a rational reason for her expected long time off. :D

Probably just worried about the sensitivity issue. One of God’s disgusting little tricks, while making them irresistible he also made them impossible to play with. Bastard.
