  • It's not too late! Anything you can do will help your baby (and you)! kellymom.com probably7 has information on this - it's called relactation.

    Good luck! :o)

  • It is never too late! Contact your local La Leche League for face to face help. Visit www.kellymom.com and also www.drjacknewman.com

  • Never too late. I relactated for an adopted baby and it had been 6 years since I had last breastfed! There is a group here on CM dedicated to just that at http://www.cafemom.com/group/37539


    Post over there and I can give you a step by step of how to do it!

  • As Gdiamante always says, never too late unless you've had a double mastectomy. I strongly urge you to get some support though, find a good IBCLC or get to LLL meetings, better yet, both if you can!
