  • lol! You are like the 3rd person to ask this today! I'm a doula and I have two clients outside of this forum asking me the same thing.

    Sex, nipple stimulation, walking, squatting, or...you could just let nature take it's course. How many weeks are you, and are you dilated or effaced at all?

  • the easiest way to do it and not involving meds is basically take long walks every day some time even twice a day

  • NO! You will keep making it until your milk comes in. If you don't breastfeed then eventually the milk will go away, but not the colostrum. In fact, if you are leaking colostrum, (not every woman does by the way) it may make you make more.
