I was ebf my dd until she was about 3 months old (roughly 12 weeks, I think). I stopped because I was losing my milk, even though I was pumping when she wasn't latched on and she was latched on almost all the time. After about a week and a half of her screaming all the time and not wetting quite as many diapers, we finally gave in and gave her formula. Since then, I tried fenugreek and mother's milk tea. Neither seemed to help a great deal, but I gave up after about a week because every time my dd would get near my breasts, she would scream bloody murder and try to get away from them. I've been devastated and felt like a total failure since then. I want to try to start breastfeeding again (it's been about a month and a half since I stopped) and I was wondering if the SNS's made by Medela might help her to latch on again, if I can start producing milk again. Has anyone had any success with relactating this way? Thanks.

Wow, I don't know about that. There is a group on here about this very topic so you should search for it. Also call a lactation consultant.
