    Yes, it can happen. Reading up on adoptive breastfeeding might provide you with some good information.

    Many mothers have found these two sites to have good info: www.asklenore.com and www.fourfriends.com/abrw

    My dd started nursing again after 3 or 4 months (I honestly can't remember). Her latch was terrible, but she had a pacifier and she wanted to nurse so badly. I kept coaching her on how so that it wasn't painful for me, and she finally got it. She has been nursing like a newborn lately though . Let me know specifically what you are searching for (ie, latch vs. desire, etc), and maybe I can help some more.

    She wont latch on! sometimes she will act like she will but its just one suck, like ashe is trying to drink out of a straw, i guess is the best way to explain it. I will ask her if she wants "milkies" some times she does the above, but that is when she is standing up, if i try to lay her in the nursing position she will scream.
    I know she likes my milk, i got out about 5 1/2 oz today. Yeah She just wont take it from the "tap"
