Re: Trying to re-lactate, Baby just screams
Welcome to the forum!
The first thing you need is a better pump. Using a hand pump to relactate is like trying to go up a tall mountain on a moped. It probably can be done, but it's going to be a v.e.r.y. s.l.o.w. process! So I suggest calling your local LC- preferably our local IBCLC- and getting your hands on a hospital-grade double electric pump with correctly sized shields. You're going to want to use the ump frequently, aiming for around 10-12 sessions per day, with more being preferable. That doesn't mean you shouldn't bother if you can't pump that much- just that ideally you're going to use the pump that much.
This link talks about how to get a previously weaned baby back to the breast: kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/back-to-breast/ The instant reward and skin-to-skin techniques are supposed to be especially useful.
