moderate exercize is ok.
Realize that what is considered MODERATE by todays standards is simply walking to the TV instead of relying on the remote.
Take your treadmill at normal pace for about 20-30 minutes a day. That should be fine.
A faster then normal pace may not be ok this soon after birth. Remember , your uterus is still shrinking. You should still be feeling its 'pull' sometimes when nursing.

oh , I think I forgot to mention KEGELS~!
not only do these help to bring the vaginal walls back to normal strength, they can also help the rectal muscles regain thier strength as well. All of the lower piping has been stretched to smitherines..
work em back to where they were before.
instead of sexual intercourse, mutual masturbation... oral sex.. toys.. etc. There are other things you can do right now that wont compromise your healing process.
honestly, for us, we didnt have sex for .. oy vey, MONTHS.. but I was also in a diffrent situation. Having had problem pregnancies before, I wasnt taking any chances.. but yeah, it can take a while before you start having sex again with no fear.
The first time after you have a baby can be one of two things.. Painful.. or you notice a lack of feeling.
It takes your body a while to go back to its pre-baby state. Nursing will help knock off those extra pounds and quickly.
Dont fall for the idea that you have to keep eating MORE food just because you are breastfeeding.
In truth, a woman only needs about 200 extra calories to cover making milk for her child.
You should be fine. :-)
