As some of you may have read in my previous post, I would like to re-lactate. However, I can't spend all of the time I need to bring in a supply( pumping), or even BF regularly because I don't have the time. Also, my DH is not supportive of relactation at all. He wanted my to stop BFing for his birthday present. Sometimes when it is just my DD and I, I will latch her on just to soothe her. I still have milk, but not enough to nourish her, so she takes formula. Is it okay that I BF her only sometimes just for soothing and bonding purposes? Does the milk in my breasts go bad since it has been sitting there for a few days or maybe even a week without being expressed? I seem to have quite a bit of milk still, and she will even stay latched on for a long time and I can hear her swallow. I believe that I had some over production issues which made BFing so miserable in the first place. I haven't BF'd her for nourishment in almost 2 weeks, but I've latched her for soothing a few times over the last week. It is nice, my nipples no longer hurt and my breasts have softened and are no longer painful and I feel like I can finally enjoy bonding with her while BFing even though I am not her main source of nourishment. Does this make any sense? Am I going to make her sick, feeding her "stale" breastmilk?
