I Want To Produce Milk- Help Me!

I have not breastfeed for over half a year now. I have not learned much about this, but I want to produce milk again, and give it to my post-breastfed toddler in a cup, in cereal, or whenever. He has been sicker since he was weaned (more than usual and before fall).

I tried expressing to see how much I can get (I have not completely dried out). I get-a fatty, creamy substance that solidified like melted butter. What can I do to start up again?

Thanks for your responses

Have you tried Mothers milk tea, drinking more water and pumping a lot?

You can alwasy use domperidone, lots of women including myself have had success with it.

This would be interesting to know. Would this be considered relactating? Can you relactate at anytime after weaning?

i'm guessing you still have a bit of milk, just no foremilk so you're only seeing fatty hindmilk. i would keep stimulating your nipples and if you still need help give domperidone a shot.

That makes a lot of sense, which would explain the butter like texture.

Thanks mamas for all your input. I thought breast completely dried up, but in my case that is not true.

Will look into Kellymom also.

yes you can get your milk back again even after weaning. i have a close friend who is adopting and will even breastfeed the baby! but it does take time and endurance to get there.
