    So you're still nursing? Or no?

    If you're still nursing, then you should have no problem pumping even very occasionally.

    If you're no longer nursing, and you're asking whether you can induce lactation after seven months of not nursing, then the answer is still yes, maybe, but that's more complicated. Can you clarify?

    Still nursing. Hoping to go a year, I just didn't know because I had quit 6 weeks in because of thrush ( didn't know to pump and dump) and I had tried once before a while back and the thing hurt so bad to try that I haven't again. Thank you I'll try this next week

    If the pump is hurting you, you may not have the proper sized flanges/cups or you may be turning it up too high? It shouldn't hurt especially after nursing that long (that is, any initial nipple soreness should be long since passed for you). What type of pump are you using?
