Re: Deployed Sailor Mom needs advice
Laura, I'm so glad you chimed in! There's just not a lot of experienced mothers out there who have been in a similar situation.
OP - you can definitely nurse again when you and baby are back together. You may have to help her re-learn to nurse again. Read up on info about nursing strikes for help doing that.
To keep your supply up, or being it up higher when you're back together, the standard helps for low milk supply should be just fine for you. Many adoptive mothers can bring in a full supply for their infants; you can definitely work to increase your supply, too! :-)
