Re: Relactation? Is it possible??

I am in the process of relactating after a 6 month absence. My reasons are health as my 18 month old has had a cold all winter and I'm tired of it. I began manual pumping about 3 weeks ago and rented a Symphony pump on Monday. I also started taking fenugreek and blessed thistle and began taking domperidone on Monday. I am seeing fantastic results. I really believe within a few weeks that I will be producing enough milk to give her a boost.

I would suggest if really want to try it, do some research. Here are some sites:

http://www.mamadearest.ca/en/info/ne...ssing-milk.htm (lots of information)

There are different protocols for relactating. I would suggest looking into. It is an undertaking, but to me, it will be so very much worth it. We've been away from the breast about the same time. All bodies respond differently. PM me if you would like to talk more.

Good luck!
