Alot of people are saying  that right now since im starting to produce my milk that my husband should be sucking on my boobs that it helps with the producing of milk.  Is it true or not?

The first bit of milk is best so I would say no. But ask a doctor. I've never heard that.

Lol.. i think they're messing with you.. does your husband want to?

Wait for baby.. The colostrum comes first and that's the best stuff for baby to get.. has baby come yet? I didn't get my milk until a couple days after I delivered..

I agree with the others that the first milk is the best for baby and I know pumping can cause preterm labor so I feel like sucking on them would do the same

Ya I would not do that!!! Baby needs that first milk and your actual milk won't come in until after baby is born.

Your body will naturally produce colostrum after you deliver. Your hormones change and your body knows to make colostrum. A lot of women breastfeed throughout pregnancy and still produce colostrum when the baby is born. So if hubby wants to is say go for it but be careful. If he doesn't want to, it isn't going to hurt your supply any lol.
