Thread: Relactating for 6 month old after 4 months off.

  1. #1

    Default Relactating for 6 month old after 4 months off.

    Not sure this is the right area to post. I'm in the process of trying to relactate for my 6 month old, who hasn't breastfed in 4 months. We had a really hard time nursing as she was 4 weeks premature, and they gave her formula. We continued to have severe latch issues, due to some severe postpartum depression, I quit.

    I feel very guilty that I didn't stick with , and ant to try again. She sometimes suckles a couple times, mostly fights me. I don't have much milk at all right now. I'm hoping to get my hands on an sns feeder soo to help. Any tips?

    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
