I had an emergency c/s with ds1, so I had labored for a few days. This, I"m sure helped my milk come in. With ds2, I was still nursing ds1 when I had a planned c/s, so it wasn't an issue. Eight years later I'm going to have another planned c/s, but now I'm hearing stories that it may be hard to start lactating after a planned c/s. Has anyone had this happen? Any advice?
Nursing after planned c/s
I had an elective with my first child due to health problems. My milk came in just fine. I have also heard the horror stories, but mine was fine. No matter how your child comes out, your body knows to make milk. Not to mention there is colostrum there before birth anyway. Just make sure to feed on demand and often and you will be great :)
C sections have nothing to do with proper milk supply -- just another way people over dramatize c sections
