Re: If you had a c-section...
I was pumping for all of my children (all NICU babies) within 2 hours of getting into the post pardom room. The only reason why I might not this time is because I need a PET scan and I don't want to give my son radioactive milk. Though I have been told that I could just save that and in a few hours it would be fine.
Now I didn't get any milk till a few days later due to no labor but that is a different story. My son was released from the hospital at 6 days and I was breastfeeding him at that point while on Oxy then Motrin. No ill effects at all for him. My other children were micro-preemies and they didn't have any ill effect from the milk they drank either.
