Days for Milk to Come In

The other day a customer contacted us to see whether we could run a poll for her

She said ” I had an emergency c-section with my first 8 years ago and although got milk in had trouble maintaining supply – I was curious if it may have been the c/s or just perhaps the stress associated with the traumatic labour. Good to see a huge range of times, and didn’t seem to matter if it was natural or c/s – I won’t panic this time about having to have a c/s! “

The question we asked was: How long did it take for your milk to ‘come in’ [and if you had a c/s could you note this with your answer]

We had 132 replies and have tallied up the results.  It’s not an official statistical or technical poll, just answers from a cross section of women on our Facebook Page.
