I agree with Dr Sasidharan. Also would add a point, at 4-6 months baby can wean off breast milk. So since your baby is 5months old you may wean her with complimentary feeds. Kindly visit pediatrician for advice of same.

Would recommend exclusive breast feed for six complete months. C section is not contraindication for breastfeeding. Milk production is never ending process. Top feed is associated with constipation. Issue of nipple confusion also present. Best thing would be to continue exclusive breast feeds for six complete months .Regards
