    Hi all,

    I'm having a c-section tomorrow (scared!!), and am hoping to be able to breastfeed. I've not had any breast leakage or anything at all, so I was wondering if I should have a little pump this evening to get things going so that I have something to give my baby tomorrow? :baby:

    What do you think?

    You certainly can pump now. I noticed that if my OH sucks on my nipples (yes, TMI, sorry), I start leaking the next day (but it goes away since I don't use it and comes back next time there's suction). So, if your body is like mine, you should definitely have some colostrum for your baby tomorrow! If you start having contractions, stop immediately. (This is assuming there's a medical reason for your c-section.) Good luck tomorrow!!!!!!!!! :)

    Thanks, I'll give it a go (the pumping not OH sucking my nips, I'm not sure he'd be up for tasting colostrum!). :thumbup:

    p.s. baby is breech, hence the c-sec xx

    I wouldn't, I don't think it will make a difference. Just relax and let it happen tomorrow!

    Ok I tried and eventually got a tiny drop of clear stuff out of each one.

    It was horrible though! Feels nasty and I didn't like it. Doesn't bode well for breast feeding does it :(
