Here is why I ask, So 4 months ago I delivered an amazing little girl via c-section. I had a horrible labor, followed by an emergancy c-section where I had an alergic reaction to some of the drugs they used. For 3 days I was incoherant, extremely dehydrated and had horrible eclampsia with risk of seizures. Because of all of these issues and medications I had to be on I was told it was not in my or my baby's best interest to breast feed.
If I had not been pushed into a c-section or had issues I would have wanted to at least try. I am wondering if surgery combined with issues not only makes mom's more hesitant to breastfeed but also makes medical professionals push twords formula as an easy solution rather than breastfeeding during a dificult situation.
Does the increase in c-sections also correlate with moms using formula versus breastfeeding?
