Ok, first of all, it's ok to say no. Perfectly fine!But, I've had 2 c-sections and I'm going to another in April. And all I have to say is that by 8 weeks, you might be ready for a little distraction that doesn't involve breastfeeding or diapers. If you're doing it from home you can do it on your schedule and really take your time. I'd have your friend choose a relatively simple design and go for it!
