  • It means you lactated once before, but either never breastfed or stopped breastfeeding, and you let your milk supply dry up. Then you decided you wanted to breastfeed again, so you take steps to relactate, to get your milk supply going again. You can do that by just nursing or pumping regularly for awhile, or by taking medications.
