I'm diabetic and my babies always need a bottle after delivery. My body has higher than average sugar floating around and their bodies adapt to that. When they're born .. Less calories/sugar = over production of insulin and low blood sugar. It was never a huge deal though. I breastfed all of them for about a year. Almost a year and a half with my youngest.



Untreated, low blood sugar can cause seizures and issues like that. There are things that are 'ideal' and some things that are 'realistic' .. you know? The baby won't be contaminated if they have a bottle of formula. :D It won't mean you can't breastfeed either.



As far as the c-section goes, I would absolutely try labor first and see how it goes. If it doesn't work out, it's normally pretty obvious and they'll just send you in for a c-section.

There was a woman on here who went to 42 weeks + and refused to be induced. Her and her baby are doing fine last I saw. You can not be forced any procedure you dont want to do. Including induction. Walk lots, go to the pool and have fun while waiting even. Lol enjoy the last few days as best you can.
