Breastfeeding Is Tricky
A C-section is major abdominal surgery, and you know what's connected to your abdomen? Pretty much every other part of your body. Not only do you have a tender incision scar to avoid rubbing against or putting weight on, but it's also nearly impossible to sit up straight since you have essentially zero ab strength.
So the most common nursing position, the cradle hold, which puts baby directly on your abdomen and requires near-perfect posture from Mom, can be difficult to master (never mind how hard breastfeeding itself can be!). This is where all. the. pillows. come into play and when that adjustable hospital bed becomes your best friend.
