Topic: Pumping early... x posted
Was chatting with my Mom this morning and she asked me if my midwife advised me to start pumping 2 months before the babe arrives. Apparently, one of my moms neices is due with her third child in April and her Dr told her to start pumping already at 32 weeks. She does not breastfeed, just pumps and bottle feeds her kids, but I thought this was a little odd. As my Mom said "for hundreds of years I guess we were doing it wrong!" where my concerns went to nipple stimulation can cause uterine contractions, and could pumping early bring on pre-term labour. Anyway, I thought I would ask my midwife for her opinion, but until then see you you all think!
