  • Ask your Dr. about relactating, he should be able to get you started.

  • if it's just been 7 days then odds are you are still producing milk.
    contact your local la leche league, get to a meeting or meet with a leader, they can help you in person.
    in the meantime, put your baby to the breast as often as possible. pump in between feedings, this will help stimulate your body and aid in milk production.

  • If you can't get anything out at all then there probably isnt anything you can do but if you can even get couple drops out try nursing him to get your body going then just keep it up and pump Good Luck hope you can get it to work
