    Question starting over kind of?

    I was wondering can I re-start breastfeeding to my 4 month old even though he hasn't been breastfeeding since he was about a month old? I have been just EPing and I get enough milk for now, but I feel so guilty not breastfeeding him and I want to do both. Can someone give me some advice please.

    you really can, i suggest going to see a lactation consultant or meet with your local LLL for a meeting and they can all help with latching and stuff to figure out how to get your little one back to the breast!

    Yes, you absolutely can do it! As Tiffany said, it is helpful to work with someone in person. Also, please check the sticky at the top of this forum. There are several article links posted to help get you some initial information. Good luck to you!

    I wanted to ask if he will latch at all? If he refuses maybe a nipple shield will get him back and then once he is on the breast with it then wean from the shield as soon as you can?

    It's nice you have your supply already! goodluck
