My good friend had a c-section on Friday. Her baby is latching on now, but when the first 24 hours without wanting to take her breast. The doctor said he would be okay even if he didn't have any colostrum that first day.
Today she's home and he hasn't stopped crying. I sense he might be hungry, is colicky or simply wants to be cuddled more.
I want to help and can only give her advice I think might help, but I'm not a mom yet so my advice is only so helpful.
I advice using a sling, which she doesn't have and just bringing him to her bed. Maybe by lying next to her, he might sleep and so might she.
I want to visit her, but she 3 hours away and my husband is concerned about my well being, since he doesn't want me to stress. I just want to help.
