You can relactate, but it will be a lot of work you will probably need to do more then two feeds a day to keep up a supply. or at lest pump inbetween feeds.

Kelly mom website has a good section on relactation is start there.

It may involve a lot of pumping to start with if you lo isn't keen to latch on right away.
