It sure might be! It's a lot of work, but sure worth it! Check out one of our many articles on re-lactation in the Land of Milk and Honey article section.

Re: wish to relactate at 60


JackieJ - I'm ahemm 64 - and I am producing drops. It could be much more but I have to rely on a pump for most of the week only get suckled at weekends, when I know I feel as though I am just at that point where if he suckled for longer, more often, the drops would become much more. So, if you have a partner who is willing to suckle you often, each and every day I cannot see why you cannot produce milk. Have you been pregnant before and produced milk before? I think as we get older it gets harder but if you are really keen then never say never!! Good luck!!

Greetings,

I wish you two the best of luck on your bonding journey, and know that even if your milk doesn't come in, the closeness you gain will be worth the time invested.

If you haven't already, please check out hismilkmaid.com for her wonderful journal of relactating, as well as the comments of her co-blogger who also relactated in her 50s. Both are great stories you'll enjoy.

Hi JackieJ My wife and I started to nurse about eight weeks ago supplementing with herbs and Motilium. Just a few days ago we saw the first tiny pearl like droplets of milk around her nipple. I had been suckling for a while and decided to squeeze gently with my fingers the area around the areola just to see if there were any signs. My wife is 57 and has not lactated before. we are apart for a couple of days now and I am missing our nursing time together already. Good luck with your partner. I hope that you devote yourselves to one another and the level of intimacy that you will find.

Re: wish to relactate at 60


Hello again JackieJ, I hope that you and your partner have started to nurse.Two weeks on and Elaine's milk is slowly but surely starting to increase.She has gone up a cup size already and there are very noticable changes to the nipple and areola. We have included "more milk special blend" which contains extract of Goat's Rue, Fenugreek, Blessed thistle, nettle and Fennel seed.She is also trying out some of the nursing tea infusions which taste quite nice! We are fortunate enough to be able to nurse quite regularly at the moment and I'm starting to taste a slight sweetness after a few minutes. During each session we will express a little milk by hand. To see small droplets of milk come together is really something special for us I have to say and we are both enjoying the new bond that this has given us. Please let us know how things are going for you.

2love - it's great isn't it when you get the first signs of milk! I'm 64 and have been doing this mostly alone because I wanted to, but I do have help at weekends when a dear friend suckles me. When he does suckle he says it tastes of milk and honey (apt!) so I'm keeping on hoping that soon he will get more than just a taste of my milk! The rest of the week I'm on my own with the dratted breast pump, and I feel so close to getting the milk in, if only I could be suckled more often every day! Still, that's life for you!!
