My son got breastmilk until he was about 4 months, but it was always from a bottle because he never liked the breast. He would latch just fine, but hated the feeling of my nipple. He is 8 months old now, and I can still get drops of milk out of my breasts whenever I squeeze them. I quit breastfeeding at 4 months because that is when I became single, and it was near impossible to pump AND take care of a colicky baby at the same time, so I switched to formula. Being that I can still get drops out of my breasts and that my son is a little older, can I amp up my supply again? I feel so guilty that he had to have formula, I still beat myself up about it today. I know it will take TONS of work, but is it even possible? I am certainly willing to try because my son deserves the best and I will go to the ends of the Earth (so to speak, if the Earth were flat) and back to provide that for him. I would appreciate any info.

Try putting him on the breast again. The best stimulator of breast milk is the baby's sucking. GL
