I did find one study that suggested that over hydration of the mother can cause delay in milk coming in. Well, I had an IV with fluids for like 3 or 4 days and was hugely puffed up from excess fluids. So, my conclusion was that it isn't the c/s itself but the excessive fluids that some mothers may receive in the course of their medical care that results in the delay in milk coming in.
