I'm having a repeat c-section and have some questions. This one will be scheduled before I go into labor whereas last time it was an emergency.
My questions are: since I'm not going into labor naturally will my body still know to produce milk for my baby right away?
I have been reading that it is hard to bf in the side-lying position yet I fear that's all I'll be able to do while I'm still in the hospital so that I don't hurt the incision. Will I have problems with this? Should I prepare to try other positions? Anyone know good positions for c-section moms? What if I need help while I'm there making sure new LO is getting a good latch? I will be in there for 5 days - can I get a LC to come to the hospital?
Last time I was told my breasts were not the right shape to feed my child by a nurse in the hospital which led to me doubting myself and well that led to early supplementation due to failure to thrive and jaundice but then once out of the hospital I got support from friends, established my supply, and exclusively pumped with a lactina select for 13 months. My question here is I want to avoid any supplementation and just wondering what I can do to be better prepared this time.
Thanks for reading and for your help.
