I am new here and would appreciate your advice.
My husband and I will be adopting a newborn in late October. I would really like to be able to breastfeed the baby to aid in the attachment process and for the nutrition the baby will receive.
I have been told I can 'make' myself lactate without medication (birth control, dom., etc.). Is this possible? If so, what steps would I need to take? I am willing to take herbs, but have a bad hx with bcp and would like to stay away from them if at all possible. Can pumping alone induce lactation?
I would like to start this process soon so that I can prepare my body for this amazing journey.
I appreciate your time.
