Symptoms Of Induced Lactation
Regular stimulation of the breast, either by the baby or with a breast pump, will eventually restore your milk production.

It produces a few very rare cancers in healthy folks and some of the distinct quasi-cancers in the immuncompromised. There is a huge amount of scare / rubbish stuff about it online. There is nothing you can do about it, so get on with your life and try to be happy. ...Read more
