Re: Forced weaned and want to go back
Although everyone would love to have the most perfect weaning story, it doesn't always work that way. You did a wonderful job nursing for 14 months!!! Congrats on that momma.
If I was in your shoes, and my son showed interest in nursing again I would allow it. At that point you can even try and show him how to open wide and latch on again. However, I would not try and regain my supply. That is the most stressful thing, pumping and herbs... I just would not go down that path at 18 months. You probably have some milk left and who knows, if your toddler decided to nurse a lot perhaps you would regain some of your milk once again.
Nursing toddlers at 18 months is a lot more about comfort than nutrition, and since you've been weaned for 4 months clearly your child is fine with solids!!!
Either way, feel peaceful that you gave your child a wonderful start with breastfeeding and don't stress over how the weaning went down. You have bigger and better things to experience with your toddler, and more memories to create together.
