DELETE Please

My DD is almost 6m old and we have been formula feeding for about 1.5m because my husband deployed & I couldn't BF & keep up with ODD. I feel incredibly guilty as DD2 is our last & I want to share this experience with her. I am still producing a very small amount of milk so I am confident that I can relactate but how do I get her to re-latch?

I just put my daughter back on the boob. She actually boycotted the boob for about a month. One day I just put her back on the boob. I still don't make enough but she nurses in between bottle feedings. Check out kellymom.com for relactation help.

Thanks so much mama! I knew of that site but I couldn't remember what it was called. I really hope we can succeed. I have an overwhelming urge to BF her for as long as possible now. Total BLW.
