need advice on trying to return to BF. for medical reasons i had to bottle feed expressed milk which was fine. now my baby girl is better and I would like to nurse again and cut back on pumping. she was about 6 weeks when I had to start the bottle and now she is 4.5 months on expressed bottle. she is refusing the breast now. Is it too late? I had always dreamed of nursing my babies and i feel crushed and loosing hope.

I've heard plenty of stories of babies going back to breastfeeding after only taking a bottle. Some as old as 8 or 9 months. So as Sarah said.. Keep Trying. Here's a link from Kelly Mom on some suggestions to try while trying to get baby back to the breast.
