    I used a medela lactina, I tryed to pump every 2-4 hrs during the day. I usually had 4-6 pumps a day.

    It took me about 3 mo to make 28-30oz a day. But i basicly started over it had been about 4.5-5 mo i think since i nursed her to relactating again. I did 40mg 3xs a day of dom.

    I've been relactating since Dec. Yesterday I pumped 8oz. Pretty good for me, I was making more but ran out of dom so it will dwindled down a little. So I'm trying to build it back up. It's so weird though because today I have pumped 4 oz this morning which for me is a ton then the last 2 times I tried I could not get a let down. So I don't know what the deal is. Anyway I'll look at your update again. It's hard because I think I'm the only one currently relactating, so thanks for the update gives me encouragment that it is possible.

    Thanks so much Relactating has been hard but totally worth it. It makes me so happy when my baby gets to have my milk. Lately he has been getting 2 full feeds of bm with some left over.
