Many mothers stop breastfeeding within the first 6 weeks, and many among them say that they wanted to breastfeed longer. This book is a guide to rebuilding your milk supply after a gap in breastfeeding. It doesn't matter whether you stopped breastfeeding a week or even several years ago. It doesn't matter if you want to return to breastfeeding the same baby, relactate to feed an adopted baby, or any other circumstance. The process is the same, and relactation IS possible. This book will guide you through:
-The practical steps including expressing and information on medication which may help.
-How to safely and slowly reduce bottles as your milk supply grows.
-Tips for managing a pumping regime while also parenting and juggling day-to-day life.
-Supporting the baby's return to the breast.
