    Default How often should I pump to relactate?

    I stopped bf my baby when she was 2 days shy of 3 weeks old. Now I am regretting my decision and am wondering how often should I pump to begin to relactate?

    How old is your LO now? the simple answer to your question is as often as you can. Ideally every 2 to 3 hours with a good pump would be a good start. Will your LO still latch on and nurse? the best way to increase or get back a milk supply is a nursing LO. this link has some more info about relactating. Good luck and keep us posted!!!

    with rcsmom's. There's no such thing as too often when you're trying to relactate, so the more sessions you slip in the faster the process will go.
