    Default nipple stim to increase output?

    I recently heard a mama talk about using nipple stimulation to increase her pumping output. She would stimulate every 15-20 minutes during the day and supposedly it helped.

    Has anyone heard of this? Or tried it?

    Hmm I've not heard of it or tried it but I can see how if you did that you'd get very good at stimulating letdown for your breasts and that could help increase the amount you got during letdown and therefore increase output.
    Sort of like training your nipples to letdown with just touch alone.

    I'd be one of those moms that if anyone stimulated my nipples in the first year they were likely to get a stream of milk!
