  • No, not weird! It's not a great idea because it is possible to start contractions this way.

  • No prob! ;-) Effects from nipple stimulation are similar to that of Pitocin: Unnaturally harsh. Pit is a drug used to induce (or augment) contractions. Nipple stimulation is something used when labor needs a kick-start. Sometimes it's recommended to try for a mom hoping to avoid medical induction. But it can work and it's intense.

    Better to wait. ;-)
    I'll paste some tips below, too.

  • WANT TO PREPARE FOR BFing WHILE YOU'RE PREGNANT?

    Do what you can to stay hydrated, well-fed, rested.

    Go for as natural a birth as possible.

    Keep baby with you at birth, no bottles or pacifiers.

    Plan to have help at home so that you don't need to do anything but Babymoon.

    Stay in bed for 2 weeks breastfeeding.

    Let others handle life for you.

    Stay committed, know that keeping with it can be tricky but worth it!

    Start attending La Leche League meetings now and continue after the birth for information and support.

    You can read The Womanly Art Of Breastfeeding now, too.

  • You're tricking your body, not really a great idea. You make colostrum to nourish your baby, not to play with.

  • Actually, you just said you're leaking clear stuff. Colostrum is clear for some women!
