HOW DOES HAVING A C-SECTION AFFECT YOUR MILK FLOW?
The medications you’re given to use during your recovery shouldn’t affect your ability to breastfeed, but you may need to get experimental with your feeding position. Painkillers and related medication could make your baby extra sleepy though, but the medicines given to you won’t have a harmful effect on your child. Try to feed as regularly as possible, to establish a good milk supply – it’s recommended that you breastfeed every two to three hours while establishing breastfeeding. The more traditional cradle hold could be difficult and painful for you as you recover, but many moms find that lying on their side while feeding helps for the first few days.
