With my first son, I labored but still ended in c-section. But I was able to begin producing milk and breastfeeding within the normal time. I am having a scheduled c-section for this son...since I'm not laboring, how long does it normally take for the process to start? Will my body know that I gave birth and understand to start producing the milk?Answer Question

It's important to bf in the first golden hour after birth. You may need help. Tell everyone your baby is not to get any bottles, water, or formula. Your milk should come in quicker this time since your breasts have breastfed before. With your first you grow more milk glands and your breasts become mature. Your milk should come in by day 3 but it may be day 5. It could be as soon as 24 hours. Babies are born with extra fluids so they are ok until your milk comes in. Jaundice is not a reason to not breastfeed.
http://www.kellymom.com/ is a great breastfeeding website.
