Here's a link to the Cochrane collaboration review of Breast stimulation for labor http://www.cochrane.org/reviews/en/ab003392.html
The studies that concluded that uterine hyperstimulation can occur used 30 minute durations of breast stimulation using a pump. That's a lot IMO.
I personally think manual stimulation is better. One, you don't have to deal with storing the colostum and possibly wasting it and two I think you are likely to get better levels of oxytocin going. JMO.
I can't remember exactly but certain types of breast stimulation promote different hormones. . .I think pulling on the nipples promotes prolactin. . .I can't remember what's best at gettting oxytocin going. Was it rolling the nipples? Rubbing the breasts is more for oxytocin I think.
