    Default Haven't breastfeed in 3days, can I start again?

    As per title, I'm onto day three of no breastfeeds (I was going to wean but am feeling guilty) I was only doing morning n night and bub didn't seem that interested and had formula top ups anyways. So am I able to start again?

    I just tried to feed her n she had about 3 sucks then stopped, offered her a bottle n she had about 30ml. Just not interested in milk atm even her other feeds she'll be lucky to have 100ml a feed sometimes less. She's 7.5 months.

    If you are really keen to get her back on the breast, just keep persevering, this article has good pointers about getting over a 'nursing strike'
