Another relactating question
 
Hello!

I bf and supplemented until baby was around 3mos then switched to alimentum. Baby is 7 mos now. Would it be worth trying to re establish a supply or even partial supply?

Absolutely it would. I would use a supplemental nursing system (sns) at every feeding so that baby is getting formula while nursing which will help you reestablish you're supply. Also pumping inbetween nursing sessions will help. Stay well hydrated, take supplements like fenugreek, mothers milk tea, etc

Where could I find a sns? Do they sell them in stores?

I have one we no longer need. $30ppd. I've only been able to get them online. PM me ifyou'd like it.

Idef. think its worth it to try to nurse again. Another pricier route is domperidone, that's helped tons of mamas up their supply and relactate. You have toorder it from an online pharmacy though and it takes a couple weeks to get to you. Just keepoffering the breast and pump pump pump!!!

I've heard many mamas like inhouse pharmacy.

You can BF while pregnant but some moms report a loss of supply while pregnant. I still think you should give it a shot!

You can definitely breastfeed while pregnant (and then tandem feed). But for some mamas it hurts and supply can go way down. That is why my DD1 weaned before either of us was ready :(

Awesome! Having already BF you have a much higher chance of successfully relactating. Keep it up!
