Wow, what an amazing story, and what an amazing mum you are. You're doing a fantastic job. There are other LCs in the world, maybe try another one...

Good luck on this amazing journey!

I have officially relactated! I'm now making as much breastmilk as Cammy needs! I am a Superwoman!!! It was a rough 17 days and the journey is not yet over (still have to maintain this supply and pump like crazy because he's refusing the breast) but I'm so happy. So so happy ♥

Still exclusively BFing by the breast and no longer taking anything to aid in my milk supply. So ecstatic. :-D

Just wanted to update to say that my baby boy is now just over 6 months old and still breastfed. He's only just beginning solids and loves his 'boobah'.
