Re: what else should I do?
I've read in some of the pregnancy/child brith books that milk can take longer to come in after a c/s as well, because the "hormone cocktail" that sets off labor hasn't sent the signal yet. I bet it will be in momentarily! I'm afraid that pumping too often may not make your milk come in faster, but it may come in like niagra falls, ready to feed your hungry octuplets!!
You're doing great! I would keep at it every 3-4 hours, or see if you can talk with a lactation consultant on staff at the hospital for her opinion.
P.S. Any updates on your little man?
