hi shreya, bonding with baby does not necessarily be with breastfeeding only. c-section can take some time to recover. you can hold and cuddle your baby, even for a little while at intervals. baby recognises your voice right from when she was in your womb. talk to her, sing to her, stroke her gently... no need to be depressed... everyone feels overwhelmed after delivery, its natural. our life has gone through a sea of change, and we are mothers now. it is  beautiful thing.. enjoy this phase... you can go through my posts on my page, see even i also went through it..as for breastfeeding, get nipple shields till it gets better.. then get your latching correct...

hey dear. dont loose hope. this is the phase included in every motherhood at the start. i had twins and they came early. one and half month early. i and my husband had made so many plans that aftr our babies arrive we will take care of them. like this and like that. but suddenly one day my waterbag broke in the morning and i was shifted to hospital in emergency.. my docs also wer not expecting me so early as it was nly the 33rd week going on. .. they were expecting me by 37th week. injections were given to prolong but it was in vain. .. c section was done and i delivered a boy n a girl whose faces also i could hardly see as they wer immediately shifted to surya hospital for the best treatment they could get. .. aftr being discharge i had to go everyday to meet my twiniies to the hospital just to be with them n see ther faces.. i didn't even got aftr pregnancy rest. as aftr cming hme the nly thing i could think off is regarding my babies to b fed on my breastmilk.. which i had to pump out n in that depression was nt getting much.. still i managed to take out hw much i can. aftr a month they got discharged and again i was depressed that i wont b able to feed both my babies as i was thinking m. nt getting enuf milk.. i consulted docs n they suggested to give both.. formula and breastfeeding.. few days i did that but with the guilt feeling that m. giving formula milk to my kids. ...than i was brought to my mumma's place amd ther i could manage myself with kids nd with the positive mind state started feeding them... gradually my milk flow increased n they r nly on bf now.. and seriously m able to bond with them more during my feedings.. the phase will pass on dear.. dont loose hope. after starting with the bf i also got cracked nipples which is bec of poor latch.. bt was prescribed nipcare cream by my gynec and it workd really well n got cured on two days.. apply ice on your nipples before feeds and aftr feeds apply nipcare n wash it off before feeding.. and dont cry dear.. your baby needs u the most at this stage..
