This may seem weird but I am wondering how long after birth you can breastfeed if you stop. My DD - 17weeks - was mixed fed from birth and had crap support and ended up stopping at 9 weeks.
Recently I have been topless in bed and she has tried to latch on, also now I am feeling more human I am really regretting not maintaining the breastfeeding. Is it possible to restart or have I missed the boat now? Would it be weird/wrong to try to if indeed it's even a physical possibility?
It can be done - there is info here It would be best if you sought assistance from a BFC as well, telephone numbers for all the big bf orgs can be found here You are starting the right way, you would need to bring the baby to the breast as often as you can. Good luck!
DD was in SCBU for 10days in a different hospital to me over an hour away so I struggled to ever get my supply established, then used nipple shields, was told they had to top up when I wasn't there etc and then it just all went wrong a few weeks later!
Will give it a try I think, no harm, even if it doesn't work. Feel like I've been robbed of the experience. It almost makes me wanna have another baby!!
