Is it ok for my weaned 2 year old (weaned since 14 months) to start breastfeeding again?

Is it ok for my weaned 2 year old (weaned since 14 months) to start breastfeeding again?

Why: Weaning is a natural point of transition for infants/children.Like learning to self settle/sleep alone, toilet train, separate and go to school, it is part of growing up. There are no nutritional superiorities at that age, when they have a collection of table foods diluting the effects. If the kid needs comforting/nurturing i would look to a different way to accomplish that goal. ...Read more

Go for it!: There's no reason you shouldn't try to "relactate". Your milk is the best thing for the baby. You should get a breast pump, and pump both sides at the same time to stimulate your milk to come back. Also fenugreek tea can help. See a lactation consultant for more advice. Gook luck! ...Read more
