Question for those that have had ELCS and tried to BF, or those who had milk production issues
I'm a bit worried that now my section date is upon me that I'm not going to produce milk. My original plan was to harvest in advance as there's a 50% chance I might have to have a GA, however there's no sign of any milk. In fact I have had no breast symptoms at all and other than them growing a bit I've had no tenderness or anything since the 1st Trimester. From my understanding the hormones released in birth will trigger the production, however as the baby is being delivered before they're ready does this cause a time lag?
Do I need to be prepared to have to FF to start with and try BFing later?
Or does the fact I've had no breast heaviness etc.. mean I'm not likely to produce at all?
Sorry for all the questions but I sort of want to be prepared mentally before tomorrow so I'm not disappointed.
Thanks for your help.
