I've had two sections and no more issues breast feeding than the next lady (just cracked nipples). I had gestational diabetes with my second and milk came in by day 2.

I wanted to BF after my Csection with my first but my milk didn't come in at all. I got nothing. Literally! Plus she wouldn't latch even with the midwifes help. So after fighting all day to get her latch I have in and the midwife gave me a bottle.

I had no problems, milk came in about 2.5 days after c section. Didn't find it hard with the incision despite it getting infected!

The removal of the placenta is what triggers the initial production of milk, so in theory a c-section shouldn't make a difference :-)

Thanks ladies xx
Seems to be divided
Just like bf with vag birth.
I'll def try my best anyway.
Didn't work with ds cos he had a stroke
But he fed for few days and I pumped for 2 months
Only gave up cos health nurse told me I was making his reflux worse with combi
Shouldn't hve listened cos that was rubbish
I'll know better this time.
Its if I can manage it with ds too might be problem this time.
But Oh be home for few weeks.
So he will just hve to do everything with ds for a bit
Sorry I'm rambling now
Thanks a mil ladies xxx
Great to hear both sides xxx

I am now on my third pregnancy and will be a c-section again (all 3 c-sections). My first pregnancy, I had an abundance of milk and it came in during my third trimester, around 8mths. My second pregnancy, my breast milk didn't come until nearly a week after the c-section and was also given Domperidone to assist with the milk production. I am hoping with this third and final pregnancy, that I am able to produce milk unassisted. I did not find the incision made it difficult.
