    Default Starting Again...

    I was wondering what kind of advice you could give me on reintroducing the breast to my baby. I breastfed exclusively for the first 5 or so days of my baby's life. Due to medical reason I could not continue. I have been expressing milk ever since. I have managed to maintain a good supply but would like to try breastfeeding again. Is it possible? My daughter was born July 11th 2007. I've read in many places that it is very possible, but difficult. Should I try anyways?

    Expressing seems to take forever and with the amount of time it takes to clean the pump... Anyway, I know I'll need to express when I return to work, so is it in my best interest to go through the nipple pain/soreness and issues with latching all over again this late inthe game?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!
