Hi Lou

No it isn't to late to relactate especialy as she seems to want to latch on.

I would have plenty of skin to sking with her, let her latch on and suckle. Then when you are giving her the formula feed I suggest that you pump.

Before each formula feed offer her breast first, then top up.

So if you are pumping inbetween this will help bring your supply up.

It wont be easy, but you have already ( well your daughter) has already come over the biggest step and thats WANTING to latch on again, that should make things for you both much easier.

:aww:
