Is it possible to establush a supply after 9 montgs?

The most I ever pumped at one sitting was an ounce but I really wanted to breastfeed for myself and for my daughter. She still nursed mostly for comfort until about 6 months. I haven't tried in a few months but if I try to hand express I still get a few white drops to pop up.

I was just wondering if anyone thought I could get it to come back in or if it's foolish to try?

If you can still hand express milk I would give it a shot. You might find that your baby doesn't want to nurse now though and prefers the bottle.
