Any chance of getting 9month old to start BFing again?

My DD has never been a good BFer, which I admit is probably mostly my fault. I gave her a paci and bottle too soon and she of course much much much prefers her bottle. She would always get frustrated breastfeeding, from day 1, pull off and start screaming. The LC I saw suggested a shield which helped quite a bit, but she would still never stay with it to empty me. Soooo I have been exclusively pumping for about 6 months now. I miss bfing and would love for her to do it once or twice a day. Any suggestions?

The things I will do differently with my next one.....

I would just try to see if she will latch. Not sure if she will remember a proper latch or not given how long she has been off the breast. Can't hurt to try though.
