There are also pain issues, so the c-section mom needs more help with breast feeding.
    .
    I had a c-section with my twins. I also breastfed them for over a year. I didn't agonize at all. I just had to figure out the logistics of feeding 2 at a time.

        Interesting thing about breast milk, was when I started manually expressing into their pablum cereal (and truly feeling somewhat cow like, bending over the kitchen counter squeezing my own milk into the dish O_o) and chose to taste it, that it is actually quite sweet. I was quite surprised.

        Would likely have nursed for longer, had it not been for work scheduling. Regardless, glad I did as long as it was, neither had any typical infections (ears, tonsils, etc) until starting in standard daycares later on (no issue with private small daycare), and now are strapping young lads of 18 and 20. No allergies, infrequent respiratory or other infections.
        LOL at you feeling bovine at milking into the pablum. I've heard men say that the milk is sweet also. An unexpected perq of having a lactating wife.

        To show you what a ditz I can be, I always just figured, two babies, two breasts, it's all good. But just now when I really thought about it, I can see the issue. Did you feed them both at once? How old are they now?

        This stuff isn't bad, but I'm going for that breast ASAP!

          Most of the time I fed them at the same time. My daughters will be 25 next month.

              Yep, and those gums are strong. Also, sprog has (some) teeth at six months. From six months we gave the small boy various finger foods to play with, but he didn't start eating until I was no longer in the room (when he was babysat or whatever) at age two. I had believed in the self-weaned baby, but it was not to be. We night weaned at around three years old and in the end I had to draw the line somewhere, so four it was (though I kept going for a few extra days as we were flying back to Australia and frankly the convenience was not to be missed). My kid would *still* prefer Mummy milk to food, if he could get hold of it. That stuff was more addictive than crack, if his glassy-eyed stare of longing is anything to go by.
              My son told me it was better than chocolate. He too was weaned at 4, not by his choice.

              • I'm sure as a parent (hypothetically) the idea of breast-feeding a kid that long will seem less creepy to me. I like the idea of providing that strong nutritional base to my hypothetical future children for as long as possible, but once a kid is pretty verbal... I guess it's just cultural/exposure. My SIL has 4 kids, all close in age (~2 yrs), so most breast-fed for about 2 yrs, but food was introduced around 6 months. None of my friends growing up had baby siblings. My brother (10 yrs younger) breast-fed for probably a solid 6 months, but I can't remember for sure. Now I bet if I ask my mom, she'll ask me if I'm thinking of having kids but NO I'M HONESTLY JUST CURIOUS. The curse of being married, young, and without children. If you choose not to have kids, when do those questions stop? Ever? My husband opts to change his answer every time he's asked. "No, probably not having kids." "Maybe someday." "Next month. ("Really?") No."

                Sorry, I got off-track.

                (I hope no one will take offense to me being weirded out by breast-feeding past toddler years.)

                • Nameless, before I had my son I never imagined that I would nurse for 4 yrs! There were many things I thought I'd never do, home birth, co-sleeping (I honestly thought we'd use a crib) unschooling, probably other things I can't think of right now. You just don't know what you'll do until you're a parent. Then again there are those that do exactly as they thought they would.

                      For us it stopped when I got my tubes tied at age 35 and made a point of telling family on both sides about my little procedure.

                      My MIL used to tell me it would make our relationship more "permanent" - Really???

                          • Oh the thinking in that generation! My former MIL told me to stop my birth control pills without informing my husband! I was appalled at that suggestion.

                            Then, when I did provide g/children, they were boys and she was only goo-gooed by girls. To this day all she talks about is her female offspring. She is now 88yo.

                              Cool. Mostly, since I never experienced it, I romanticize breast feeding. So, the idea of a young mother breast feeding two baby girls makes me smile broadly.

                              LOL on glassy eyed stare. The baby had that side glance and it just hit me that he might be staring at the source of Mummy Milk.

                              Socially, I always thought that if someone was going to breastfeed, four would be a decent age to wean. A year before kindergarten so baby isn't being stressed by two things at once. Oh, and baby would have to understand that s/he couldn't just stick his head under your shirt when in public.

                              I like your husband's responses to what should be a very personal question. For me the question of when I was going to have a baby stopped right around 40. You may have a ways to go.

                              I've wondered about co-sleeping. Do you have sex when the baby is in bed with you? Yep, that's my only concern.

                              I tried to search her journal for it, but I couldn't find it.

                              MILs can be a trial. As can mothers and grandmothers, and I suppose aunts (I've almost no experience with aunts because Mom was an only and Dad was raised as an only child). They can't fathom their sons and the wives of their sons wanting something different from what they wanted. *sigh*

                              Appalled indeed! Flipping that around, how would a woman feel if the birth control in question was a diaphragm, and hubby punctured it with tiny holes so wifey got pregnant. Underhandedness in a marriage is terrible advice.
