    As mentioned by a pp it is definitely worth looking into antenatal expressing. Good luck. X

    Hi OP 😊
    I had a c section and dd was born 38 weeks 6 days. She was born Wednesday and milk came in Saturday. Although it seems to have taken longer than other mums who have posted here, supply is great and bub is 80th percentile 😀 for weight.
    Good luck!

    I think the common theme emerging here is that non-emergency c-sectioners seemed to have their milk come in as you would expect, and those who had emergency sections with long, traumatic labours had the delay.

    My guess is that in the absence of any other problems, a nice, calm, beautiful c-section delivery will mean you have every chance for your milk to come in around day 3 as would be normal for a natural delivery.

    Good luck!

    I had an emergency c section at 31 weeks and my milk came in within a few days.

    Try not to stress, I'm sure it will come in quickly.

    I had a c section at 36 weeks due to pre eclampsia and my milk came in about day 5. My baby was very sleepy from being early and couldn't latch for quite a few days but the nurses got me pumping 3 hourly to get my milk to come in. We fed him small amounts with a syringe 3 hourly till my milk came in, I was lucky I never needed to give him formula. Mine probably took a bit longer because he was early but I think had i not pumped round the clock in those early days i might not have been successful at feeding.

    I think pumping around the clock made all the difference for me as well.
    My third was born by emergency c-section at 31+5 and as soon as I was able (had a few complications post birth) I asked for a pump and just went for it and my milk came in on day three.

    Yep it made all the difference for me, first baby I had no idea. I was so lucky to be in a private hospital, they were so supportive of breastfeeding and if they hadn't got me pumping 3 hourly and helped me, things would have been different. My bub couldn't latch (Prob like your little man Miss Kitty) so he just took a syringe. OP fingers crossed your bub will want to latch and if you just stick baby on as much as you can, that will really help to get your milk to come in.

    I've had two csections both times my milk came in quickly without problems. DD was breastfed soon after I was in recovery and DS went to nicu so expressed colostrum and milk for him soon after I was back in my room.
    Just take your time with baby and have lots of skin to skin
