my daughter just turned 3months and is bottle feed. Is it possible for me to increase my breast milk and teach her to breastfeed?

Yes, it is possible to do this. Many hospitals have a local chapter of the la leche league as well as the website that Ivy gave you.

Best of luck to you.

I think yes, you can. I've heard of people adopting and using pumps to start a milk supply when they were never pregnant.

On the other hand, there are also people who give birth and don't produce enough milk (I did that with one child). Therefore, it is possible with some people and not others.

I'd try to get in touch with your local La Leche chapter to help you. They probably know better than I do. Here's the website:

Good luck!
