  • LOL. Most hospitals are c-section friendly. That's why over 30% of women have c-sections.

    It's hard to find a BABY FRIENDLY hospital though. I would ask the hospital what their policy is and what do you have to sign so you can nurse immediately.

    I got to nurse my daughter for the first time when she was about 5 days old.

  • I have had two C-sections (scheduled, no complications) and was able to hold my baby and start breastfeeding immediately. Our hospital is very C-section friendly!
