Re: Trying to BF again after a 7 week hi
Welcome! It's terrific that you would like to start nursing again. The fact that your baby actually will latch on and nurse, the fact that you already stayed pumping, and the fact that you still have some milk are all things which put you way ahead in the game. I suggest checking out the PP's link and also this one, on getting a baby back to the breast: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html and this one on increasing supply when pumping: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/pumping/p..._decrease.html and this one on establishing milk supply when the baby is not nursing: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/ma...pply-pump.html and this one on weaning from formula: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/decrease-formula.html
I personally would use the fenugreek. I felt it was useful in helping me increase supply- but IMO it is not a substitute for frequent use of a high-quality pump (think hospital-grade rental).
