      Are you still lactating?

      If you are still lactating there shouldn't be a problem.  To stimulate the milk to come again, the babe needs to suckle, if you let the baby suckle a few days, you may be able to start lactation again. I contunued to lactate at least a little bit for a few months.  Try to stimulate and I think you should be able to get it going.  Do not play around after this cause baby will not like the change of flow amount going from a bottle to the breast.  By the way Druid dude, I don't remeber being bit more than once by a breast fed child and I breast fed three babies.  It was more likely for them to play instead of getting down to busines and feed.  I remember the milk going every where and them just grinning.

        Agreed... breast feeding is supply and demand - the higher the demand the higher the supply.

        And I have a one year old daughter still mixed feeding - with seven teeth.

        I've learnt to only feed when she's hungry - she only bites when she's bored or not interested.

        It seems like after three months of not nursing your milk would dry up.  I question why you feel the need to start up again?
