As far as possible give breast milk . A mother undergoing lscs can easily breast fed after 4 hours . However if this isnt possible or breast feeding is contraindicated u can try formula milk . No issues.

But according to WHO breast feeding should be initiated immediately after birth of baby, As in C-S mother, if she has less pain & discomfort, every effort should be made for breast feeding,otherwise initial benefits of Colostrum/initiation of lactation will go.... In extreme conditions we can give Powder milk as u mentioned....

IN..CONDITIONS..WHERE.. MONTHER MILK..IS NOT AVAILABLE.. WE CAN START WITH .. LACTOGEN .. POWDER MILK..

No powder /formulated milk, we can give cow milk if necessary provided mother is unable to feed.

Yes very much as per the demand of the time.

In initial 3 days, powder milk or lactogen powder is given for 24hrs, after 24hrs, we can start Breast feeding

If mother is not comfortable then can be given Lactgen powder milk

Establish breastfeeding first , in case the baby is hungery , problem in latching then only give formula feed.

Tq.dr.Angelia Maria Thomas .

Yes...
