I am happy to say that I am about 7-8 weeks into the relactating process and have gone from about 1oz a day to around 25 oz a day! I am still getting small increases every few days so I wonder what I will finally settle at. I am SO very happy about this! I have 6 month old boy/girl twins who are now eating lots of solids so I am providing half of their daily fluid needs. What a relief on our pocketbook too!
I have Chelle and Jenn to thank for providing me with so much information which without I don't know if I would have continued. And of course Thanks to everyone else on this board. :-) Now my goal is 1 year! I have learned to pump in the car too which has been a tremendous help. I don't really mind getting up around 3-4am, Nick at night isn't so bad. I just keep reminding myself of the early days when I didn't get any sleep at all. Now my 2 sleep 12 hours a night straight. A 20 minute interruption doesn't seem to affect how rested I feel.
For those wondering if you could ever rebuild a supply, all you can do is give it a try. It may turn out better than you expected like it did for me.
