Ok so I was going to give my 2 day old csection her water pitcher so she could take her pill. She said "OH Im not allowed to drink with a straw, my nurse told me". I'd never heard of such a thing so I told her it was fine and she swallowed her pill.
Now I went to the desk and asked the charge nurse about it and she said Oh Yeah you have to swallow all that air before the water comes up. So you get gassy.
Funny thing is I've never heard this before, even in L&D, where we recovered csections.
So how long are they not allowed to use a straw...forever?
