Relactation help please

I have a 7 week old baby boy and a 2.5yr old daughter and a 1.5yr old son. I didn't breastfeed my first 2 as they wouldn't latch on and I didn't have the help and support from my carers that I needed. This time round though, I delivered at a different hospital and succeeded with breastfeeding straightaway but gave up after 3 weeks due to him wanting to be at the breast constantly. Then at 4.5 weeks i tried relactating as I felt so guilty for giving up on him but I gave up again after a week of trying as he didn't seem too interested but now I really want to give it another go, and I won't be giving up without a fight this time but I need help.
I live in the UK and don't know how to contact anyone who deals with reactation. How can I go about doing this successfully and how can I get a full milk supply again quickly? He is willing to take the breast again, but won't stay at it longer than 5 minutes as only drops of milk come through. Help please!

Re: Relactation help please

I'm afraid that I can't help although hopefully others here can!

You might also try posting on the infant care board here at healthboards.

Good luck!
