Do you think it is possible to start breast feeding after?

I stopped breast feeding my son at 6 weeks old. He is now 6 1/2 months old.


I’ve always secretly wanted to go back to breast feeding but after my supply dried up I gave up hope on that. But tonight out of nowhere the TINIEST bit came out. It just made me wonder?
Honestly what do you think?

There is absolutely no reason why not. If that’s what you want to do then by all means have a go, your son will still reap the benefits. If you have a pump, start pumping frequently throughout the day like every 2-3 hours and speak to your dr or a lactation consultant as you may need medication to assist you to re lactate, though you may not need to take it, pumping may be enough. It could be worth contacting your local breastfeeding support network (aus bf assoc, la leche league etc) for some extra support as I’ve heard it can be difficult. Good on you and good luck if you decide to do it

hmm usually breast milk dries up if you stop breastfeeding
i have always heard it has to be done on a reg. basis in order for it to work.
