Is it possible to start breastfeeding your baby if you havent for about two months??

I never breastfed my first baby, and I only breastfed my second for the first month after i had her and she is 3 months now. I really wish I would've done it longer now. Can I start again? I feel like i still have a little bit of milk.

  • Good luck. I hope you find all the information you need and are able to do it. My son is 7 months and he is on mostly formula for months because of lots of BFing issues. We are really trying to kick the formula and nurse more, so I fee your pain! I nursed my dd for over 2 years.
