I quit nursing like 3.5 weeks ago & for the last 3 or 4 days I've been latching her on. I am only 8 weeks PP so I still have *some* milk. If I keep doing this will my body make milk for those times? Or will I keep the same amount I have now? What if I nurse like morning & night & pump once or twice during the day?

I miss breastfeeding....BUT it is very hard on me.....I have 2 other young children...They really need me....My Dh is deployed. They tend to really act out without my attention....Anyways...Bfing takes a LOT of time! My baby always wanted to nurse....I guess I got frustrated....I was always taking her off before she would unlatch herself.....I had lots of stuff to do.....so I was always anxious to finish nursing her

I'm going to start fenugreek & blessed thistle....

If this is the wrong place to post, I'm sorry!

if you keep latching her on and she's trying to nurse, you should start making milk, especially if you pump too.

Have you got a sling or something to wear her in to nurse?
