I stopped breastfeeding for 3 weeks thinking baby would sleep better on a bottle (he didn't). But can I start breastfeeding and build my supply back up? I've still got milk but only very small amount?

If you still have milk, even just a small amount, you should be able to keep breastfeeding. The more stimulation the better, feed him on time and encourage him to nurse a little longer at each feeding then pump or hand express to keep the milk supply up. There are supplements, like fenugreek, and teas,( Mother's Milk), that will help your production get back up where you want it. Actually, green apples work well for me!
