Has anyone tried relactation?

I stopped breast feeding after about 4 months or so because I wasn't very diligent, but I want to re-lactate. Its been about 2 months since she has breast fed, but I would love to start over again. Even if she doesn't take to the breast, I would like to pump. I heard about Fenugreek and I didn't have any success, I started eating almonds and I got a little bit of milk production, but still nothing. I haven't tried Reglan. Any other suggestions? Has anyone re-lactated after and extended period of time with success?

fenugreek is good, but you have to be on it for a while, there are also other herbs you can take and your body will bring it back although it will take a bit of time. Your best bet would be to see if your daughter will try to nurse again even if you have to suppliment, she will be the best at getting your body back to producing milk. It's great that you are getting back into it, its really one of the best things you can do for her as a baby.
