So I've been wondering about trying to breastfeed again, my lo is 10 months an haven't been on the breast since 1 month, I was told she was losing weight so I switched. I miss it so much, is it even possible to get my supply back ?

I've heard even non lactating women can get "some" supply. So you may be able to partially feed her breastmilk even if you don't get up to the full supply.
However, getting her to latch and nurse again at 10 months may be more of a challange. Not impossible...but it may take work.

I am sure there are some ladies on here with experience and advice that would help

Yes, it's possible. I believe we have some relactation links over on the resources forum. You can also google the word "relactation." Be aware, it won't be easy. May be the most difficult thing you've ever done. But those are also usually the most worthwhile things!
