Hmmm once you stop pumping/nursing etc it's really hard to get it back. At this point, I don't think you can. If the body is done, it's done. I know there are teas (Mother's Milk) and some foods that are thought to improve milk supply. I tried it all. I nursed my girl until I went back to work when she was 3 months old. And even though I continued to nurse when I was home with her, and pumped at work, I started losing milk and there was nothing I could do about it. I was dried up within 2 weeks. I'm sorry, I don't meant to disappoint you, but from my experience as well as what my doc told me, there really isn't much you can do.
You could try to pump on a regular basis and see if anything happens and you can "trick" your body back into it.... Good luck!
