How long does it take to your baby to experience his first breast suction after birth. I mean how many hours of life was he and not how long was he trying to feed.
If the answer is more than 3 hours after birth, please mention how many hours or days and explain why (hospital polici to give formula, separate cause of medical issue etc).
In other answers you can also comment if there was something special about the initiation of the breastfeeding process.

Indicate type of birth:
vaginal laying down wtih epidural or other
vaginal laying down with epidural
vaginal vertical not in water
in water
caesarea.

I had skin to skin contact within 5 minutes of birth and tried to breastfeed then, but my babyboy seemed content to just rest on my chest and not feed.  He lifted his head a few times to look at me and then I had to birth the placenta and do a few other birth things so my partner held him for about 30 minutes.  Then babyboy was back on my chest and we had a very successful breastfeeding session that lasted about an hour.

Babyboy's birth was vaginal, natural (no drugs in site, not even a tylenol), on hands and knees (not in water).

My first, I tried within minutes of birth. But didn't get a successful latch until day 3. I never supplemented with formula, baby lost too much weight at first, but we did eventually get it (after hiring a lactation consultant for a home visit). Birth was on a bed, reclining, no epidural (by choice, most of the pushing was done in a vertical, squatting position).

My second, was born in a vertical position, no epidural, in a car moving 70 miles an hour LOL . I can't remember how long, or even where my first breastfeeding attempt was, but I'm confident it was within the first 30 minutes. She never had any troubles.

Thanka to both of you for sharing your experienc. My daughter  is expecting her baby girl for next week and It certainly gives her more security on trying not to go for epidural, at least at first. She told me and her husband to try to disuade her if she asks for it unless we see her 'suffering' to much.
Maquenzie, wow....¡¡¡ can not imagine giving birth in the car.

For now my daughter is looking for a clinic in our place where vertical birth assistance is given. And also is getting ready to insist on having the baby with he inmediately over her so that she will try to get some milk or at least listen to her heartbeat.
At my time we did not have all that information and i only knew that my fountain was broken and i had to go to the clinic and be in the hands of the doctor. Obviously they took my baby to the 'babies room' and his father and family had to wait for 'showing' time to see him through a glass window. Non of the benefits of having the baby with you were known.
Thanks for participating in this poll.

My experience with both girls:

- first nursing within minutes of birth

Hope that helps!

My first baby was born in USA - Caesaren (planned, because of assumption of too big baby), I had the baby for few minutes after birth but tehn the baby was given to try breastfeeding to me 4 hours after birth. I week after birth I got breast infection so I could not breasteed. I pumped my milk a gave it to the baby with a bottle for about 2 weeks. After then everything was OK and I happily breastfed until her 3 years of age.
My second baby was born in Czech republik, vaginal birth laying down without epidural or any other help. I asked to have a baby immediately after birth (not cleaned yet), so we had skin to skin contact and time for bonding within seconds. Then they examined the baby and examined me (because of previous C-section) and gave the baby to my within about 30 minutes (dad was holding the baby in meantime). Then my baby was nursing for about an hour. Then I asked to have my baby in the room with me (I gave a birth at 6:20 pm) overnight (which is not usual in our hospital) but they let me if I insisted.
I am very happy mainly with my second bitthing experience. smile

First Birth -- in water squatting, nursed at 1 minute for about 15 minutes with small breaks to look up at me and daddy, then we cut the cord and she had another nurse in bed in another 20 minutes.

Second Birth -- in water hands and knees, nursed within first 30 minutes, then again in about an hour, but he was more content just laying on my chest and looking at us  smile

Thanks to all for sharing your experience.
My daughter gave birth yesterday and it was like sarahjean:
vaginal with epidural after many hours of contractions (synonymous of pain)
and breastfeeding trying within the first 30 minutes.
Thanks again.

I had an emergency c-section so I had to wait a little less than 1 hour to hold my son for the first time.  He did latch on almost immediately and six months later it is still his first choice.  The physical recovery from the c-section was diffcult for me so I did attempt to give him formula from time to time but he soon recognized the difference and began refusing all bottles even the ones with pumped breastmilk.

My first child was only the next day (I think about 14 hours after the birth) - she had to be in ICU because I was diabetic and her sugars went low so she was given a glucose drip as well as formula. Breastfeeding was very hard and I called a consultant in the end as she was battling to latch and was jaundiced. We did however breastfeed successfully for 26 months in the end so it can be done. She was an induced vaginal birth with ventouse.

My second child was I think more than a full day as I had an emergency C-section and she was in ICU 4 days with the same sugar issues. Despite being both syringe and bottle fed with formula and having a nasal tube she took to breastfeeding happily and actually preferred it to the bottle (even the nurses were surprised) She is only a month old now so will wait and see what happens but she is still happily breastfeeding.

We had a vaginal birth with epidural.  He was placed on my chest immediately for a little while before they cleaned him off.  I had some slight problems after the birth, so I think it was 1-2 hours before we tried to nurse.  The first month or so we supplemented an ounce or two of formula every few days.  Then I bought a pump and was able to increase my milk production.  He is now exclusively breast feed and thriving.
