Starting bf after stopping for 3 months?
 
Are there any success stories out there of mamas who have quit breastfeeding and then decided to start again after a couple months?

Its been 3 months since I stopped because I went back to work. But I miss it terribly and my one little guy roots every time I try to give him a bottle. I can still hand express a small amount in each breast so I know my milk is still there a little...

If I take the fenugreek and the mothers milk tea and drink lots of water, what are my chances of returning to breastfeeding (at least a few times a day...).

You can do it! You may not get a full supply, but you could certainly nurse several times a day. If you want to try, you absolutely should give it a shot. It won't hurt to try. GL!
