    Default I want to relactate my 4th old

    I read lots of posts here and I dont think I found exactly what I was looking for or maybe I didnt read all those long post

    Here my thing. I stopped nursing/pumping when she was 2 1/2 months. I still have milk cause I can express my breast and get some. When I pump, I get about 1oz form both breast in 15 minutes. The baby STILL latches on for she LOVES to be at my side...

    I know that several herbs like Funereek (SP?) , pumping, letting baby suck and domperidone help.

    This is what I dont know how to do and need lots of help with.
    How often should I drink thr funreek and how often should I pump and let baby suck on nipple to get my milk flowing again?

    I was told that the domperidone will help alot but along with pumping and sucking Id be more succesfull.

    Does anyone know of a good schedule/routine I should follow daily to be succesfull? Please, all the help you give me will be great!

    I'd nurse every two hours during the day, and whatever you can stand at night. If bb is willing, don't even bother with a pump. Bb is best at restating your milk.
    I found 9 tablets of fenugreek per 24 hrs worked for me, please consult your dr before taking and supplements or drugs tho!

    More milk plus extract worked wonders for me. 4 times a day, 2 days later I saw a great difference. You sort of stink but it is worth the cause....

    yup i second letting your little one nurse every 2 hours if willing, your supply will increase faster with that then anything!
    but for when little one won't then pump every 2 hours during the day and every 4 at night!
    goodluck!
