I NEED HELP! RELACTATING.
 
Hello mamas! I decided that I was going to relactate! It has been five months since baby has nursed. :( I really want to breast feed! I am taking fenugreek, fennel seed, and blessed thistle. I've started to pump every two hours. I should drink more what then i do. ANY SUGGESTIONS? STORIES OF YOUR OWN? Please help me :( thanks!

Maybe add goat's rue or domperidone? Breast massage before pumping, hand expression after? How is the pumping going so far?

Is it even possible to make oneself relactate? I've never heard of it!! If it is possible I wish I could have tried it with Ds. He's 15 months old now that and I quit when he was just under 2 months old b/c I went back to work and knew nothing then about breastfeeding and became extremely overwhelmed. After we got internet and I did research I wished I could have gone back and relactate. I didn't think it was possible though...

Yes! You can induce lactation even if you haven't been pregnant!
