No need to wait. If you are awake and can hold baby you are safe to nurse. My cousin had an emergency c section with a 35 weeker and she nursed as soon as she woke up. Good luck. You should be feeling so much better 1-2 days after surgery.

Re: Surgery & Breastfeeding A Newborn

Thanks for all the replies ladies!!

I ended up having my mom take me because I didn't want baby girl hanging out in the hospital all day, so Dh stayed home with her. I nursed her right before I left. Surgery went great. I ended up having a different anesthesiologist than I had talked to previously and he was AMAZING. He explained the process of ane. to me and told me as soon as I was awake enough to safely hold baby, I was fine to nurse! So that made me feel a LOT better. I had to spend a few hours in recovery but as soon as I got home (6hrs post op) I nursed baby girl and all is well.
