Hello, my daughter is 6, almost 7, months old. I had breast feeding her for the first 5 weeks of her life. I stopped because I had to pump everything into bottles because she would not take the breast. I have been thinking about it, and have been try for about 5-6 days now and have a few drops coming out into the bottles again. I really want to give her some more of my milk for a few different reasons. I mean I would have to keep giving her her formula and baby foods, but I also want to give her more of a boost in anyway I can. Even if I can only give her an oz or 2 a day it is something. I was only pumping 2-3 times a day and eating more then I was. Now I am trying to eat and drink more, pump a little more, and I take a multi-vitamin, iron, and now fenugreek. I have been trying to get my Milk back for about a week now. I keep getting tired like I did before when I did have my Milk, and my Breast keep feeling like they are full and heavier at times, but nothing had happened. Does anyone have any ideas or anything? thank you
