I breastfed both of my kids in the recovery room. In the hospital, I was usually in the bed when I breastfed... sitting up, but not at 90 degrees... so they weren't positioned anywhere near the incision.

I never had an issue with the incision & breastfeeding... for me it was getting out of bed that hurt the most!!

What most of the ladies have said. I nursed both in the recovery room, DS as soon as I got in there, DD took about 30 minutes because I was too out of it to remember how to say the words to ask for her. The incision was not an issue for either baby and I used a variety of holds with both, all were equally comfortable. Good Luck!

Our hospital doesn't seem to make breastfeeding a priority, even for the mom who gives birth vaginally. I remember the first morning (I had him at 12:25pm) they had come and taken him (without telling me!
 
) and I started calling the nurses for him, saying I needed to bf, I hadn't offered for like 6 hours, and they told me "oh... that's ok." I think it was 7 hours or so between feedings and they thought that was fine. They did have me offer almost right after he was born, and they do have a lactation consultant on staff who I bonded with last time (she will definitely remember me) so hopefully she'll give me some extra help when I'm there.

The second time around was MUCH easier for me...
The c-section was much easier (since it was planned) and the breastfeeding was much easier. I also found that the nurses didn't bug me as much.
I think they all want to "help" the first time moms... which turns out not to be helping since they all say different things! Grrrr! As soon as they knew I was already a MOM they gave me & baby SPACE.
