absolutely! its not a weird question :) its called relactating! i started the relactating process for my son about 7-8 months after i stopped, but then found out i was pregnant and stopped that. can your baby still latch on? that'd make things easier... you should eat oatmeal, drink tons of water and mother's milk tea (by traditional medicinals), and take enough fenugreek to make your sweat and urine smell like mapel syrup. you also need to pump/nurse every 3-4 hours during the day and every 4-5 hours during the night (depending on how old your baby is). here's a website with great info: http://www.kellymom.com/bf/supply/relactation.html best of luck! feel free to message me if you have any questions :)

hmm...i wish i had known that when my son was younger. i had to stop BFing when my son was 6 weeks old for school/work reasons. By the time I was able to do it again (about a month later) I thought it was too late. But I definitely wish I could have kept going.
