Re: Questions for feeding a 4 month old
Welcome to the forum!
It is definitely possible to bring your milk supply back. What you need to do is to give your breasts frequent stimulation and milk removal. If the baby will nurse, you nurse the baby as much as possible. If not, you use a high-quality electric pump, preferably a hospital-grade pump, with correctly sized breast shields. Aim to pump about as frequently as a newborn eats, 10-12 times a day and more if possible. Don't worry if some days you can't manage to pump that often- anything you can do is wonderful!
Getting your baby to nurse again may be possible. Or not. There are no guarantees. But this is a useful website:http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/back-to-breast/. The skin-to-skin and instant reward techniques are said to be especially helpful.
