I have a question about relactation, and I'm hoping someone here can help! A little background: My baby was born on 11/12/07, and after 2 weeks he was still losing weight, so we had to start giving him high calorie formula to bring his weight up. After a few bottles, he would no longer attempt to bf. He is now a month old, and doing really well with his weight. I ended up not pumping over the last few weeks to keep my milk for a few reasons, one was because of a little bit of depressionand incredibly sore nipples, but mainly because I have 3 other kids, besides the baby. With that many kids to chase after, finding time to pump is close to impossible.
Anyways, to my question. Is it at all possible to relactate by putting the baby to the breast with a SNS, instead of pumping? I've tried getting him to latch on, and he is VERY eager at the breast now, but obviously gets angry because there is no milk coming out. Any thoughts or help would be greatly appreciated!
