  • My ob said most women would have to do nipple stimulation for up to 6 hours a day for it to really 'work' So... I'm not convinced it's the best option anyway.

  • nope, if the body's not ready, nothing will work.

  • nope, you might have some minor contractions, but it won't kickstart anything.
