Induced Lactaion

I have a 2 year old with a compromised immune system that I'd like to start nursing again. Has anyone induced lactation and if so how long did it take and how did you do this??

  • A supplemental nursing system and a pump are the tools you will need. Get to pumping!

    How long have you been weaned? If it is a just a month or two, you might still have milk in there.

  • It has been almost a year. I hope I still have a shot.
