I stopped BFing at around 4 1/2-5 months..my baby is now 6 months and i want to start again..she is used to the bottle so im wondering if pumping will workout better and bottle feed..i took on alot of new responsibility since my mom got sick and i had to move in with her so between cooking,cleaning, taking care of 4 children i figured it would be alot easier to formula feed and give daddy feeding time..i want to put my baby first and get my milk back so i can knock the formula out..
how long do you think it will take? and how do i go about it? i tried giving her breast but she isnt a sufficient sucker now..

Relactation may be really easy or it may be difficult and you may need help. La Leche League Leaders will help for free or you can contact a lactation consultant. The best breastfeeding website is
