Has anyone ever had trouble with breastfeeding and stopped only to want to start bf again? Was it possible for anyone to bring your milk back in again or bring in more with exclusive pumping???

My baby bf for the first few days of life. I had to stop because she wasn't able to latch on due to impatience, crying and becoming hysterical if she couldn't latch on right away or fast enough, and colic. She is now 4 1/2 weeks old and I still have a few drops in my breasts that I can squeeze out. I really want to give her breast milk! I'm wondering if I can relactate and stimulate my breasts to make milk again with the exclusive use of a pump!

If its worked for anyone , PLEASE share your story and advice and encouragement!

Come over to the Induced Lactation Tribe!

Absolutely! I think the chances of success in bringing your milk back are great! Browse through the information of the above link.
