If you want to send me a PM I can send u a list of information about relactation. It is too large to put in the answer section. It is completely possible to relactate especially with just a 2 month lapse. The BC may have to be discontinued for a bit to help in relactation because even BF friendly BC can cause a drop in production. Congratulations on considering relactation.

Just remember it wont happen overnight, but if you keep at it you will relactate. Great decision! Follow missanc & mama I's advice & call your local LLL. Start latching your son immediately, which may be a retraining for both of you, and let him just use you as a pacifier. This will stimulate milk production the best. Kellymom.com, I'm sure will have some great info on it. Most importantly, rally for support. I'm so happy for you! I know you can do it!
