Regretting that you Weaned your Baby

I had stopped breastfeeding.  I would like to start again

Sometimes mothers decide not to breastfeed their babies for whatever reason. The same women might change their minds after sometime, but are worried that their milk may have dried up. If you have weaned your baby early and regret the decision, you can take heart. Women, whose babies are between four to seven weeks old, can be reasonably successful at relactating.

Will restarting breastfeeding be a problem

You cannot bounce back and forth on a decision like this. You should be certain that you want to resume breastfeeding. Relactating is not going to be easy. It will take some time and a lot of effort. For the first few weeks, relactating can be quite stressful for you and the baby. You will have to feed her very often and may have to express milk manually or mechanically. In addition, your baby's appetite may not be satisfied with the amount of milk you produce, so you will need to supplement her diet with formula.
