I tried making my baby suck but he doesnt want to

Hi Alex,
I would like to know if i can resume breastfeedin my baby after 4mths?i did breastfeed for the 1st one mth and i notice i didnt lactate much. So i used formula till now.Recently while having a bath i noticed tht i``m still leaking. But not much. I tried making my baby suck but he doesnt want to. I really would like to breastfeed but i am really sad i cant as i dont have enough milk. Is there anyway tht i can breastfeed again and to make my baby comfortable?

Sarah...
Answer: Hi, It could take many weeks to produce enough milk for your baby now and the baby has not learnt to feed from the breast so he would find it frustrating. You could consult a lactation consultant to discuss your options if you are determined to give it a try. Best wishes, Alex
