Herbs are dangerous drugs. Since they aren't regulated you don't know what you are getting.
Why do you think it would be wrong? What's going on? The World Health Organization recommends breastfeeding for at least 2 years.
Some of the reasons a woman may relactate or induce lactation with an older baby are; digestive problems, health problems, or adoption.

It is not too late and you are not crazy :-) I know a mom who induced lactation for her baby who she adopted at 18 months old. Your baby is much younger than that! I am currently breastfeeding an adopted baby, so I know all about relactating. Feel free to pm me. Another good place to get info/support would be a La Leche League Leader, and you can join the LLL discussion group here on cafemom at http://www.cafemom.com/group/7722
