My twin girls will be 2 next month (july) and I just recently found out that it might be possible for me to start lactation again after fighting to pump for 3 months but dried up. I have found out so much more information since then about milk upkeep since the birth of my 15 year old teen AND after I had already dried up with my young twins. My girls were born too early at 36/5 by cesarean....a HUGELY bad call on the part of my OB, my butt-inski MIL and my being so sick during my pregnancy. Anyway, the pain of a cesarean, no sleep, lack of nursing support caused me to dry up.
Short strokes, I'd like to get my milk supply going again, my girls are able to suck properly now, but they won't remember any of it since they really didn't latch well, no sucking power and everyone kept sticking a bottle in their mouth before I could try again. Very frustrating.
If there's a way I can get my milk supply started preferably without the use of drugs as I'm highly drug sensitive, and how do I teach almost 2 year olds to nurse properly when it would be new?? If it could work, I'd let them self wean even if it goes till they are 4 years of age and what a success story it would be!!!
