  • I'm sure people have. I do know that it is possible. It takes a lot of work and dedication, and stubbornness.

  • It takes work but you can do it. Adoptive mothers can induce lactation, relacting takes less work. :) Look up relacting, or join a breastfeeding group. There is so much you can do!

  • Go to asklenore.com there is lots of info on re-lactating there, and some great discussion groups with experienced moms who have re-lactated or induced lactation in babies of all ages.
