Thread: Pump before baby arrives?

  1. #1

    Default Pump before baby arrives?

    Just wondering if it was alright to start pumping and freezing milk before the baby even arrives. I nursed with my 2 year old and still able to produce milk. Just looking for advice.

    No, it's not something you want to do. Pumping is actually a good way to induce labor, and that's not something you want to do prematurely.
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    How long ago did you wean your 2-year-old? Just wondering because it's not always normal to be lactating way beyong when you weaned.


    Regarding the main question, I agree it's not a good idea. Nipple stimulation is a "no-no" during pregnancy.

    I've read that moms can produce milk years after weaning.

    Listen to mommal, no pumping.
