Will mothers milk cause me to go into labor? ☼ M Due November 25; Clearwater, 528 posts

Before you spit that rude ass comment out of your mouth, read this :
I DON'T WANT TO GO INTO LABOR UNTIL BABY IS READY, that is why I am asking!



I read on here that it will induce labor if you drink it because it has some type of herb in it. I was planning on starting to drink it now for when baby comes, but WILL NOT DO IT if it will induce labor. I am only 37 weeks, I can wait 21 more days.



I want to drink it because although I know your breast size has nothing to do with milk, my b**bs went from a 34C to a 34D and then in the 5th month SHRUNK to almost a B!! I have ALWAYS had C's.. so i'm afraid I won't be able to breastfeed and i've had my heart set on it :(



So yes, my question, is it safe? it won't cause labor right!?

Milk production doesn't start until the placenta detaches from the uterus. Taking it now will do NOTHING.



Also, I am an A cup- barely B, and have been EBF for over 8 months, and still going strong. Size doesn't mean shit.

Exactly this. I have 46F's and I had supply issues.

I didn't know it didn't start until the placenta detatched! I heard of women leaking colostrum and shit, and haven't had any of that, and my b**bs have gotten so small... it's freaking me out. Good to know it won't start until after birth :D

I'm not sure if it will cause you to go into labor, but breast size has NOTHING to do with whether you will be able to breastfeed or not. I wouldn't bother with it if you think it may cause you to go into labor or anything. Your body is already making milk and once baby is born your supply will increase then even out to provide as much milk as baby needs.

Milk production doesn't begin until after birth, generally 1-7 days afterwards.



Drinking that milk is useless right now. The best way to ensure a supply is to nurse your baby on demand.

I have tiny b**bs and I breastfed until just recently and my daughter is 21 months old.

Quoting Lady Anon:" Then why did you state you are worried if you know it has nothing to do with it?"


Because I had big "full pregnant lady" b**bs and then they vanished, haven't been sore, nothing, and I sure as hell haven't lost weight so I figured it was because I wasn't going to be able to breastfeed. It's not the fact that they are small -- it is the fact that they shrunk.. if that makes sense. Basically I think I 'had it' then 'lost it' hahahaha. I don't know. Just scared I won't be able to breastfeed :( my mom was barely an A cup and breastfed so I know that's not an issue, but i've never heard of anyone actually shrinking :/
