Is it too Late to get BM again?

Title says it all! My DD is almost three months now and I have not bf since she was a week old. I did not have enough supply. Shortly after she was on formula full time I had an abundance of bm but was afraid to switch her back over. I feel so bad for her because she still wants to bf constantly. I read on other threads about some things that work but can you tell me if any would work this far after not bfing? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated Mamas.
TIA

It is NEVER too late!! If you don't mind starting her back on BM, just allow her to suckle whenever she feels interested. If you have nothing, her sucking will tell your body to start making milk again.

Good Luck.

Thank You! My mom had told me to let her suckle when she tries just for comfort. To know that it will make it come back is great. I still get the tenderness and twinges when she is hungry so I was hoping I could still try. Sorry I probably sound too overly excited about bfing, lol.

You can definitely try to get your milk back. I had weaned my ds and my milk was gone completely (I had put him on hypoallergenic formula due to tummy issues). After a month of no nursing, I started pumping to relactate. I pumped 8-10 times a day, and after three weeks had enough of a supply that we could quit the formula. He was 6 months old when we resumed nursing and we're still at it, and he's almost 14 months old!

It doesn't hurt to try!
