I had my 17 month old son by c-section after hours of labor and my milk came in very quickly. I am due in November to have another boy via c-section. I am wondering if my body will get the message to make milk after the baby is out

I've had two c-secs, both w/o labor, and my milk came in on the 4th day with our 1st son & on the 3rd day with our 2nd son.

My first 2 I labored my 3rd I did not. My milk was in on day 3 with all 3 of my kiddos. I think it has something to do with the removal of the placenta and the change in hormones rather than actaually being in labor.

My first c-section was after laboring and my milk didn't come in until I was home from the hospital.
