  • I was induced and I did have problems breastfeeding but I don't think it had anything to do with being induced.

  • i was induced with my second child and i never had any problems breastfeeding it all has to do with your milk production

  • Nope. But, I only had the epidural pain meds (I know still bad.) Demoral causes the baby to be born sleepy and will have trouble BFing. But, even if your having issues BFing don't let the nurses give the baby a bottle just keep trying.

  • with my first i was induced, had an emergency c-section and didn't have the baby right away (he was under observation bc of the meds i had for my pre-eclampsia). i didn't have any problems bf him. and he even had a bottle first which they say is a big no-no, but we still didn't have any problems

  • I was induced both times and exclusively breastfed both of my kids. My first was good at nursing from the start, but I needed some help from the LC with my second because he had some medical problems and couldn't stay awake to nurse. I pumped and cup fed him like half a teaspoon at a time for a few days there.

  • Nope. I had some wicked period cramps while breast feeding the next day but I had that with all of them not just the induced ones.

  • Nope. Not at all. 2 natural, 1 induction, and 1 C-section. No problems nursing any of them.
