I nursed my son for 10 days but quit due to EXTREME nipple pain and bleeding. I would really like to try again and noticed I still had some milk when I tried to express it. Is it safe to try again or is it too late?

You can always re-lactate. It might be a LOT of work, but it is possible. The best thing to try is to get baby to latch as often as possible... and pump... and keep hydrated... and relax. Oatmeal can be good for milk production and there are also a few different supplements.

Good luck!
