    Default Colostrum vs breastmilk.. odd question!

    I'm going in for my C/S in a few days and I just have a question.

    Does what you eat/drink filter through to colostrum the same way as breastmilk? My c/s is first up in the morning, so won't be able to have my morning coffee ( ) but if I have one as soon as bubs is born - will that go through to my colostrum like it does to breastmilk?

    Thanks in advance for the answers

    I imagine it would.
    ABA say it's ok to have a moderate amount of caffeine.
    Bub gets 1% of what you ingest.
    Don't think one coffee will hurt

    I'd not think twice about it. Bubs is getting whatever you have now whilst inside, not much different to when outside I say. You'll deserve it too after having bub. Enjoy the cuddles x

    I wasn't allowed anything but water after my CS for about 4-5 hours, even then it was soup or a lemonade. So check if you're allowed a coffee!

    Why couldn't you have a coffee?

    It's not banned during breastfeeding. Just have to moderate your intake, same as pregnancy.

    You won't be having coffee after a csection anyway. It'll take a day prob before that's an option realistically.

    Why not? can I have V instead?? (KIDDING!!!)

    but honestly, why wouldn't I be able to? Is it drinks in general or coffee specifically?

    Thanks for the heads up about post Op, it didn't even cross my mind I might not be allowed to because of the Cesar, lol.
    If I hadn't been told new I'd probably get to my room and cry

    You will be a bit wacked out on drugs, your insides have all been manhandled so until u fart u won't be having anything. You will then go from a light fluid diet to food but that can take till the next day. You will be tired, sore and have just had a massive op so I doubt it'll bother u at all on the day

    I had a c section 12w ago and I was allowed whatever I wanted post op. Having a coffee won't be an issue.
