I totally agree with doulala. It's an unnecessary step that people take that they believe will help with breastfeeding, either to stimulate milk production or to toughen up the nipples, but over millions of years, the body has adapted to breastfeeding, and we don't need to take these steps, which can actually INTERFERE with breastfeeding. Best to let nature take its course.
