I'd been tossing around the idea of relactating to give D expressed milk since he seems to be outgrowing some allergies. Then a friend of mine found out that her breast reduction surgery (at 16) has probably left her unable to lactate because of the procedure the doctor used. I offered to try to see if I could pump to help her provide at least some milk for her new baby (who is due in a month).
So I'm going for it. I'm going to start pumping 8 times a day () and see how that goes. If it doesn't start to work in a week I'll start taking some herbal supplements.
I don't have any specific questions- at least not yet. But if anyone has some words of wisdom, advice, encouragement I'll be happy to hear them. I'm nervous about this for some reason, but my friend is so incredibly excited- it's contagious.
