  • U should ask ur dr about this but I dont think so. I thought that the first milk the yellow stuff that comes out is what the baby needs when they for the first couple of days but I am really not sure about this.

  • No the breast pump will release pitocin in your body and that is the same hormone that causes labor. Plus your chance of being engorged by the time you actually give birth. So it's not recommended
