Hi

I am trying to induce lactation to start feeding a 5 month old, I'm nervous cause everyone thinks I'm wrong cause she isn't mine biologically.

Also, I was wondering, how did u get yourself motivated to pump every 3 hours, please let me know my email is [email protected]

Re-lactating
by: Zelda Behr

You go girl a lot of mom's don't even want to try to breastfeed their own babies, you deserve a medal for just thinking of this!!!!

Well it can be done and has been done here is a very inspiring story...

Successful re-lactation

Surround yourself with people who support you to get encouragement this is not a easy thing. Pump as much as you can and try some of these natural remedies to increase milk supply...

Galactagogues

Nipple stimulation, breast compression and breast massage helps.

When you do start lactating, rub some of the milk on your nipple and try to get baby to latch and nurse even if it is for a few seconds, there is nothing that ups milk supply like time with baby at the breast.

There are also loads of food you can add to your diet to help as well...

Lactogenic foods

And last of all good luck and happy breastfeeding.
