hi all

So my son has eczema all over his body. I stopped breastfeeding two months ago and that's when it first started with rash on his thigh. I was told to relactate... Does anyone know more about it and what's your opinion on trying breastfeeding again?


( his lacthed twice since yesterday i seen 1 ounce after pumping )

Eat lots of oatmeal and leafy greens and drink lots of water, and keep pumping and getting him to latch on  and nurse, and your milk should come in pretty quick again if it's only been a couple months.

what about trying fenugreek or other herbal supplements? Some one said one can of beer a night helps along with lots of water in the day up to 8 glasses

Pump every 2 hours for 30 minutes. Fenugreek, blessed thistle and Goat's rue, three pills, three times a day. Lots of skin to skin. Look into an sns or lact-aid. Good luck. Expect that it can take just as long to relactate as the amount of time you've stopped.

Fenugreek helps alot as well, if you think you need that too then take it. I did with my son to keep my supply up, and it does work. It makes you smell like maple sryup just so you know though. Also mother's milk tea works really well too. Some people don't like the taste, but I actually liked it. I never tried the beer, but I have heard it works, I think it is something in the hops that helps.

I relactated with my ds2  I took fenugreek 3 to 4 pills 3 times a day. I wore him in a sling against my bare chest and pumped every 2 - 3 hours in the beginning. Kellymom.com has a section on it.

 

Good Luck!
