relactating is it possible??

My ds is approx 10 months old and when he was born, I had severe problems with my C-section opening taht would not heal for over 5 months I was just wide open....but thats another story...in the process of all those troubles the doctor gave me meds taht I believe is the cause for my milk supply to never show up...however, I will say for seiously like 4 hours one day it did appear but was gone by bedtime....never had engorge boobs or leaking..never had to "wrap" myself since it just didnt come in....so my question is is it possible to relactate in order to try and get some good stuff in my son??

I would love to try and Bf him again...but is it to late and is that possible??

{{{HUGS}}} to you. Relactating is possible, but not probable in your case. I did a ton of reading up on this for a friend. It's probable about 2-4 months after giving birth or weaning if your milk came in well. Since your milk didn't come in very well and since he's 10 months, it's not probable. I'm sorry.

You can relactate. I have friends that began to lactate for their adopted children and they were never pregnant! It will take work, herbs, adn medication. The medication you will probably want is Domperidone. It can be ordered here www.globaldrug.tv Most people need between 30 and 110 mg a day. There is information about it on www.kellymom.com

Good Luck, this is a wonderful thing you are trying to do

In short, yes it's possible. Many people have lactated with adoptive children, even if it wasn't for full nutrition. I would visit lalecheleague's website and read up on adoptive breastfeeding. That would probably be your best bet. Good luck!

You would really need to pump even if he will suckle. It will take more than just his suckling to get it started. Even if you don't get a big supply, if he will comfort nurse you can still have that amazing nursing a toddler relationship.

Re: relactating is it possible??

I gave up nursing my first dd when she was like 6 weeks old because I didnt think I could do it and work. I felt so terribly bad about it. I tried to relactate a couple of months later and I got nothing. I did not take anything, I just pumped all day. So, I think you would definately need to take something and pump! pump! pump!. A whisperwear would come in handy for pumping all day trying to get it back. Good luck
