A c-section is not less stressful for the baby than an induction, I assure you. The whole process of labor has a purpose for mom and baby. An induction can make labor more intense, but it is far less traumatic on all involved for the baby to descend the birth canal.

C-section babies will require more suctioning etc and a lot of moms have issues with milk coming in later because the whole process was disrupted. I was very fortunate that mine came in before I left the hospital, but I nursed him on demand, and non-stop the first 24 hours.
