    Unless you plan on having a general anaesthetic for your c/s?

    I was allowed to eat straight away too (after I was out of recovery). I didn't know they limited food post c section.

    Yep same with BubblesK, I was also able to eat and drink what I wanted after my spinal c-section, I was so hungry I made my husband get me potato wedges.. Yum.

    I've also had a c-section under general at 11pm and although I wasn't allowed to eat initially I had a full breakfast with a coffee at 8am!

    Don't stress OP

    It does depend on your doctor/hospital I was allowed to eat anything post op apart from clear fluids water, lemonade, jelly chicken broth and icecream until I fartned/pooed and that wasn't until 3 days after my op. I was starving by then

    I was under the impression that what you consume doesnt pass through the colostrum the same way it does breastmilk...my midwife has always suggested having nurofen post birth to help with swelling until my breastmilk comes in for this reason...

    On the coffee side, ive always stuck to one "real" coffee a day when pregnant or breastfeeding Its never effected my babies as ive tried eliminating it for a month or so if they've been unsettled and it doesnt make a differnece...

    This sounds totally bizarre to me! Why could you have anything other than those specific foods?!

    I've never heard of being denied food post c-section. Your body is desperately trying to repair itself as well as produce colostrum and bring the milk in. You need nutritious food and most new mums have a voracious appetite as a result and for very good reason.

    I'm another who was tucking into a full meal as soon as I was back in my room. They also provide BFing mummas with an extra round of sandwiches for overnight! They probably won't have real coffee anyhow, just percolated or instant which is lower in caffeine. If your bub is particularly unsettled you might want to cut back to decaf for a while and see if that helps. Every bub is different though.

    Did you have a classic c-section or a lower segment? Maybe that's the difference.
