    Default Babies born by c-section have much higher infection rates (study reported in SMH)

    http://www.smh.com.au/national/healt...126-1qjs1.html

    Important info I think for people planning their birth.

    Also says breastfeeding problems more likely to occur after c-sec.

    NOTE - if your c-section is unavoidable for medical or personal reasons, then I hope you can take this info and be aware of the potential for issues, maybe there's some way to mitigate the risks or at least be on alert for the types of infections

    excerpt:

    BABIES born by caesarean are much more likely to be admitted to hospital with gastrointestinal disease or chest infections in their first year of life than those born naturally, a study of NSW births has found. The babies were 22 per cent to 26 per cent more likely to be hospitalised with gastrointestinal disease and about 12 per cent more likely to be admitted with bronchiolitis, a type of chest infection, the researchers, from the Kolling institute at Royal North Shore Hospital, found

    I'll still be having my elective c-section. DS was also born by c-section and was a very healthy baby and is now a very healthy and bright toddler.

    Meh. I had my third baby by csection and all future babies will be as well. Only one I was happy with the birth and then went on to successfully breastfeed her for 10 months.

    That's good news!

    Nevertheless, definitely something for people to keep in mind if they arent sure which way to go.

    I had a c-section last month (breech baby) and I must say the first 3 weeks of breast feeding was more painful than anything to do with my pregnancy and c-section. So I had great difficulties, but now all good. (still missing a couple of bits of nipple, but I am healing now)
    Pretty sure my DS is healthy and happy.

    I've had 2 emerg c-sections,

    DD1 - terrible trouble establishing BF although we did get there in the end. She was also hospitalised with very bad pneumonia (nearly in ICU) at 21 months. So a bit older, but maybe still worth noting.

    She also has intolerances to dairy and soy (quite bad).

    So she gets a tick on all three.

    DD2 - no trouble BF, but I was very educated about BF by then, no chest or abdominal trouble and she is now 2.

    I wonder then if there is value in probiotic supplements for c-section babies? I have been reading about this lately and there seem to be some studies suggesting a benefit.

    A swab of the mother vagina can be wiped into the babies mouth.
