Good to know that you still want to breast feed. Breastfeeding works on supply and demand basis, so more the baby feeds and more the breast is stimulated, more milk is produced. For this, firstly, try to put the baby to the breast as often as possible (every 2-3 hours at least). Even if the baby isn’t feeding, have skin-to-skin time. Keep the baby close to your body as much as possible; touch his cheek with yours this will also help. Or try using a pump or hand express for 10-15 minutes on each breast 4-5 times in a day.. Initially milk supply will be low, but gradually it will increase. Baby may not like to suck on empty breast so for that you can first take out milk with the help of breast pump and then put baby on breasts or take out milk and use the feeding bottle to feed your milk. All in all, continue trying to restart breast-feeding, as this will ensure healthy growth of your baby.
