Hi All

I am trying to re-establish my milk supply after weeks of not breastfeeding/pumping. My son just turned 3 months and I had latch/supply issues since the beginning. I began supplementing a few  bottles, then it was more formula than bmilk and now its just formula but I want to back to pumping and feeding him the best. Does anyone have advice as to where to begin.? I have a Medela pump in style advanced electric pump by the way. I guess I need some tips on a schedule and if theres something I can drink to get it going again.

Appreciate any advice! Thanks in advance.

I don't have experience with re establishing milk supply but this link from Kellymom.com may help : http://kellymom.com/bf/got-milk/relactation/.  Also, a lactation consultant may be able to give you some tips and advice.  Good luck!
