I was very slow to get back to running after my son was born. I was so excited once I was cleared to exercise at 6 wks, but when I tried to run, I felt like my organs were going to fall out. But my son loved the jogging stroller rides, so I at least tried to walk until running wasn't so uncomfortable.
The advice I do have is to try to breastfeed before you run, for 2 reasons. Your breasts won't be as heavy and won't be as likely to ache or start leaking because of stimulation. And also, I always managed to time it so that my son was hungry right after a run, and I was all sweaty and smelly. I didn't want to make him wait for me to get showered and dressed, so I'd end up trying to quickly clean off the areas he might touch. I always felt bad making him smell my fresh post-exercise aroma.
