How to get her to breastfeed again....

My daughter started.refusing the breast one day... ooooooo about 3 months ago... I continued to pump...

Lately though I have really been missing her BFing, am pretty tired of making a bottle, and pumping... I was also having supply issues back when she stopped nursing but have regained my supply...

Is it possible to get her to latch on again or is it pointless? If its feasible, how do I even go about doing this?

She is 8 months with two bottom teeth and she rarely eats any solids so she takes a bottle quickly And easily... would she still take the breast?

If she won't latch on directly, you might consider using a nipple shield to try to wean her back to the breast.

I'd suggesting offering when she's half asleep or just waking up. Maybe if she's
