Nipple stimulation?

Couple questions....
1. Just wondering if anyone tried this method & if so, did it work for you?
2. How long did you do it for?
3. & how long after did you go into labor or start labor?

Also, how far along were you when you began trying the stimulation?

  • its not safe to try this befor 38wks so i dont suggest doing it till then and yes if you do it alot it does make your contract however if your body isnt ready for labor they are going to do much of anything except make you uncomfy.
    I suggest only trying this if the dr has said you are thinning out and dialting and he gives you the ok to do it. Iv hear you have to do it up to 4 hours a day though. who has that much time to play with there nipples? not I.
    good luck.
