Right after my daughter was born, I breast fed her for a month. I stoped due to low milk supply. Now, 7 months later my daughter is 8 months. I am wanting to go back to breastfeeding again but, i'm not sure how to. I really need some good advice on what to do to bring your milk back in and how long it takes. Also, if it's a good idea or not. Thank's for your time(:

I would email Lenore directly. There is a lot of info already posted on this board that would help you.
If your daughter has had the bottle this whole time, you might have difficulty getting her to latch on again. I believe it can be done, but you would need to be extremely patient.
good luck
