  • I have never heard of cinnamon, in fact you should not be taking large amounts of cinnamon if you plan to nurse as it can cause your milk to not come in, or to dry up.

  • I'm kinda thinkin' this is a myth. I lived on frozen pineapple drinks (alcohol free, of course!!) for 9 months with 2 of my pregnancies, and I did not go into labor early, so I don't know if it really works or not.
