  • never too late as long as yo have breasts...why did you have to stop? Did you pump at all after that? How long has it been?

    Best way to make milk is to remove milk either by nursing or pumping..pump every 2-3 hours round the clock, up water intake, drink mothers milk tea, eat oatmeal, you can do this, drop by a BFing group and ask more questions.

  • Not too late till you have a double mastectomy. Go put that baby to breast. Drop by the breastfeeding moms group for more help.

  • Its never too late. If its been a while (you didn't mention how old your LO is) it will probably take some work and dedication. Good luck!
