    Welcome! Congratulations on the new baby. There's a lot you can do to get your milk supply going again. The best thing you can do is to nurse the baby, if he or she is willing. This link covers getting a baby back to the breast: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/concerns/...to-breast.html. If the baby is unwilling to nurse, the best way to get your supply going is to pump as often as possible using a good pump. The Ameda PY is NOT the right pump for the job. I know, I used one. I strongly suggest using a hospital-grade rental pump, with correctly sized shields, and pumping every 2 hours during the day and every 3 at night. The best lace to get a hospital-grade pump is probably from your local lactation consultant, who you probably want to see anyway about that cracked nipple and because a good LC can help you get the baby to the breast.

    that isn't the right pump to use to try to relactate with. Really, you need to rent a hospital grade pump. And you need to get baby to nurse much as you can. Those two things will go a long way to getting your supply back up.

    If you scroll down the home page, you will find a whole forum dedicated to relactation.

    Contact a member here, AndreaUAE, as she lives inDubai and can probably help answer that question. PM her, and I'll drop a message on her FaceBook page to come look for this thread.

    Hi, I'm Andrea. I currently live in the UAE. You probably need a hospital grade pump as the others have mentioned. I would try contacting the large, mostly Western hospitals like American Hospital and Welcare. There is also Oasis Hospital in Al-Ain (where I am) which might have pumps for rent. I'll send you a message now. Don't lose hope!
