I didn't try very hard though. I wonder how I would get it to start producing again? google didn't help me at all lol
Ok well I just sent my Lactation consultant an email asking her how to make the other side relactate. She has 32 years of experience and is so wonderful!!
I will let you know when she emails me back

My Mood:
I would buy a double electric pump and pump both breasts the use of the pump may fix the inversion. On a reasonable suction setting it won't hurt and it may relactate. You could also try reglan or domperidone to increase your supply but an efficient pump will help more.

Wake up and pump between 2-5am it's when your body produces the most and you may be pleased with your output at that time.

Don't give up you are doing amazing every ounce adds up.
