How???

Is there really a way I can re-create breastmilk? My daughter couldn't latch on at birth. She's now 7 months old and the desire to try again is stronger than ever, after 7 months in formula is stronger than ever. My boobs have only just stopped having anything come out of them when ''squeezing'' the nipple...

Is there ANY way to get lactating again?

Hello :smt006
Welcome!!



I suggest you call the ABA hotline or talk to your Doc or, if you have access to one, a Lactation Consultant.

Good luck!!
And good on you for wanting to feed :smt023 :smt041

I know of one lady who successfully relactated at around 6 months and she is now tandem feeding her DS and new daughter. It was a long journey, but obviously worth it for her (and her DS) Good luck with your journey, I think calling a councilor would be the best way to begin :)
