I have a son who is 2. I had a csection where they kept injecting me with medicines in my iv plus oral pain meds. Then once I got home from the hospital, I tried to pump and for a couple weeks I tried and just never got the milk. i was also on metformin. i was a first time mom, and new nothing. now, im pregnant with twins, i fear another c section and having no milk. what do i do, just not feed the baby until my milk comes in, how long does it take to come in and are my babies going to starve? I want to only pump for both, no formula.

I know it's possible even with a c-section and with twins to pump/breastfeed. I would recommend meeting with the lactation consultant in the hospital as soon as possible after giving birth...hopefully they can help get you on the right track. Also, if you can find a La Leche League group in your area, that would be a great start, even before you deliver. The sooner you can get them to nurse, the better. It may take up to 5 days for your milk to come in, but in the meantime they'd be getting colostrum, which is important. Also, at that point their tummies are tiny and they don't need much.

Good luck, and if you have other questions, ask away!
