That is ridiculous, ignorant, and ridiiculously ignorant. Not to mention abysmally anti-BF. There are good drugs, safe for breastfeeding, for csec mamas. For my own csec 10yrs ago, the only caveat I was given is that if I was going to keep baby in bed w/me, all they would give me was extra strength tylenol every 4hrs (not 3, w/codeine, just a larger dose of regular tylenol). It was plenty--and well worth it for continuous rooming in and co-sleeping! I did really want my dose a bit before the 4 hrs was up for that first week, but it really wasn't a big deal. I went home at 2 days post surgery, and continued w/tylenol constantly for 1 week, a bit less for 2nd week and then nothing after that...and if I started to hurt during weeks 3&4, I took it as a sign to go lie down (not that I was doing much mind you, until about wk 5).
So wrong...so sad to know that that attitude is out there.
