    Default breastfeeding after quitting once.

    I would like to know to get back into nursing. I know that sounds weird but I gave up with my daughter because my milk never came in after 3 weeks of trying to feed her and she nursing for 3 minutes getting frustrated and stop. I turned to a bottle. I heard theres things to help make your milk come in and I have tried pumping with getting less than an ounce out of both breasts. I have also tried feeding her every hour with the same result nursing for up to 3 minutes getting frustrated and stopping.

    Please if you can help

    Moving this thread to Relactation and Induced Lactation for more replies.

    Yes, it is possible to restart breastfeeding after an interruption. It would be helpful for us to know how old your baby is, and how long it has been since she last breastfed. There is a sticky at the top of this forum with a lot of great articles to get you started. There are also many relactating mothers on this board whom I am sure will share their experiences with you.

    Best Wishes,

    tell her she can call her local leader they are around to help!
    You can get the baby back to the breast at that age it just takes some time and alot of work but it can be done.

    Five weeks old is still very young, and relactation would definitely be possible. Do you have a local LLL leader who could help? That might make a big difference.
