I was induced with my first and had him natural then had a c-section with my second. My c-section was easy compared to my natural birth with my son. I just took IB Profen for pain on my c-section and I did ok.

I was told they are more about nursing and less about for formula now. Hopefully everything will work out.

Hun my Lo is fixing to be month on the 17th. First two weeks were hard because yah can't move nor pump enough milk, or get him to latch. But after that I stopped taking the pain meds, and stuck with it. I pumped into a bottle so he could drink my milk instead of formula. Then exactly last night I got him to latch on with a nipple shield. Most amazing thing ever! You can do it. I was going to give up but didn't!

I had a c-section in 2010 and am having a repeat one in May.
I was given percocet every few hours my entire 4 day hospital stay. Then I was given my choice between Vicodin or Tylenol 3 upon being discharged which I would take at night before bed to help me sleep.
Baby was completely fine nursing.
Best of luck.

i still nursed while taking the same thing. & if your baby wont latch on. get on walmart.com & order this thing that suctions to your breat. it makes your nipple exactly like a bottle. works tremendously! plus you dont get as sore!

just make sure they know you are breastfeeding. they gave me vicodin but I only took half at a time. with my c-section I was walking around and doing my hing by day 4 and day 6 I was back to scrubbing floors and making dinner :) it isnt as bad as most make it to be.... a scheduled c-section that is :)

Holy Moly American doctors order hardcore pain meds for c-sections... that is insane!! ... I would only suggest and take tylenol 3's if necessary myself.

.5 mg of percocet is hardcore? hokay. I'd rather my "hardcore" drugs and not be in any pain vs silly tylenol and barely able to move.

Quoting .Colleen.:" Now that you mention is, Luke was in the NICU and part of the reason was breathing. It was a very reputable hospital, I don't see them not advising me of the risk either."


... i do.



but i don't have a lot of faith in the way hospitals operate when it comes to infants and childbirth, regardless of reputation.



it's an obvious one -- a VERY obvious one that you and i can make the quick connection about (pain meds = depressing brain function on multiple levels, why would you be willing to expose an infant to it, if it can be avoided?).



but there's a lot of that in american hospitals... it's a sort of backwards approach to the entire childbirth and postpartum paradigm.
