DS#2 is due in just over a month but this has been bothering me lately. It will be a planned c-section at the same hospital where DS#1 was born. I go straight from the OR back to my room so no recovery room. I'm able to nurse as soon as I'm back in my room. I nursed DS but I don't really remember all these things and I know the hospital will tell me to do 15 minutes on each side etc.
My question is, how long should I nurse for the first time? Do I let him go for as long as he wants? And if he goes for a long time, do I switch sides at some point?
After that, when I nurse him, how often should I nurse on each side? Do I do the 15 minutes per side thing? Do I let him go as long as he wants on the ones side and next time do the same thing but on the other side?
I want to do whatever I can as soon as possible to develope a good supply and I know these first few days can really affect that.
