Is it possible to start lactating again, several years after breastfeeding?
can a woman start lactating again, (without having another baby), after a break of several years? i'm desperate to lose immensity and i know that when i was breastfeeding, the solidity just dropped stale, so, if it IS possible to start lactating again, i am considering expressing some breast milk every day to give a hand me -along with full-bodied eating and excersise- lose bulk?!
it is possible to lactate again.
you have hear of wet nurses, right?
For example, if a woman is adopt a baby that isnt born even so, she can begin using a breast pump for the months prior to the little one's birth, so when it arrives, the adopting mother can nurse.
The breast pump stimulates your glands into producing milk. Actually, even a man could do indistinguishable thing! Werid, huh?
But I must vote, wanting to breast feed in recent times to lose weight is for a moment weird too. Why budge through all that trouble (leaking, slumped and shrinking of your breasts when finished) when you are not even doing it for a baby?
Try Weight Watchers or Jenny Craig. Most of these places even hold online programs you can follow.
Good luck. You CAN lose the weight--just keep trying!
However, this method is NOT a surefire process to lose weight! When a woman is pregnant, a great deal of the weight she gain is in protective fat stores used to produce milk for their infant; when a women begin nursing, those fat stores are used to produce the milk, thus dropping the cargo. This is why a lot of women plateau surrounded by losing weight after breastfeeding for a reliable period of time. If you do not own the fat stores for producing milk, the solidity you lose will be minimal!
Also be considerate and don't agree to any milk you express go to gamble away. Especially if you know other mothers with youthful babies who might not be breastfeeding at all.
I'm not sure how antiquated your children are, but if they're no younger than...say 3, they should still own some sort of innate sucking reflex. A mouth is always a better expresser than a pump.
So bequeath it a shot. Your child(ren) may wonder why they should suck on your breast if it doesn't yield anything, so I'd move about for the pump first. Just remember it might take a while.
If this doesn't work, (and it should since you effectively lactated beside your last baby) next your doctor can help you near medications that can minister to you lactate. But only try this if you've gone a month in need lactating.
I suggest 10 minutes per breast about every 6 hrs and afterwards maybe to every 4hrs after that. Try this for four weeks.
One more entity. If you take the pill, you might want to stop doing that and resort to condoms if you are have sex right now. While breastfeeding a kid can be contraceptive, I wouldn't rely on it if you start lactating again. Your doctor can also tell you if you are competent to take the pill again, but this is something that you might construe about while resuming the flow.
So no is the answer. You'll just enjoy to stick with the hygienic eating and exercise.
