Re: Is it possible to begin breast feeding at 6 months?
It is certainly possible to start nursing an older baby. There are no guarantees, but if you don't try you'll never know whether or not you would have been successful. This link has useful techniques for getting a baby to the breast: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/back-to-breast/
Have you been pumping all this time, or using formula? If you've been pumping and your milk supply is roughly equal to your baby's needs, it will be easier to restart nursing. If you're using formula, you're going to want to bring your supply up using a pump while you work on getting baby back to the breast.
