  • NO it dont work, but if you happen to get lucky and go ino labor after taking it, you will poop all over the nurses and doctors.

  • People think it does but studies don't show that it does.

  • I am not sure if it does or not, but its not good for the baby... it can cause them to pass their first baby poop early, and then they are floating around in there with poop, getting in their system. If you are considering it, I know its hard to wait until the baby is ready, but for your baby's sake, just wait.

  • my MIL used castrol oil for my SO and he pooped. So when she went in they decided baby was in distress and she had an emergency C. I do not recommend it, she didn't either!!
