I have been relactating for myt 6month old son and was really having a problem getting him to go back to the breast. I put apple juice in the sns before and he took it once but wouldn't take it again. Well today I decided to try again and he took it and nursed for 15 min. on one side and then I put him down and he started crying so i picked him up and put him on the other side and he nursed for about 10 more min. I know he had to get bm too cuz It was time to pump and I usually get about 2oz at a pump session and this time I barely got any. Yippeee, now I hope he will do it again. :boy:<br><br><br>

Yay, way to go! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> If you can get your supply up, you could put EBM in the supplemental nurser - and his nursing plus pumping will get your supply up soon!

I did it again and this time i put 1 oz apple jiuice, 1 oz water and 3 oz bm. he took it again and nursed for 30 min. I have tried it before with formula and or bm and he wouldn't take it. I called a LC that I got my sns from and she said to do just that, slowly get the apple juice and water out and just put ebm in. I do so hope this is the beginning of getting him back to breast. We have been trying for 2 months now.<br><br><br>

thank you so much for all your encouragement. We had another good dayt on monday (nursed with the sns 3 times) but We didn't have such a good day yesterday, he only took the sns 1 time but I just kept trying and didn't get upset. If he really didn't want it I just gave him his bottle (with skin to skin contact) Hopefully today we will do alittle better. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We will keep trying to nurse and if not then I will pump for him.

Great news!!! What else are you doing?<br><br>
Keeping your top off and wearning him in the sling, him just in a diaper?<br><br>
In the bath together is another relaxing place which may make some babies latch on. The warm water helps your milk to flow too.<br><br>
After the bath, get on the bed naked and give him a massage, lie around and play. The more he sees and smells your breasts, the better.<br><br>
Keep up the good work! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/partytime.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="partytime">
