Relactation - An overview

Work in Vietnam and elsewhere using relactation and induced lactation rather than artificial feeding to deal with situations in which large number of orphan babies must be dealt with. Large numbers of women were recruited as wet nurses and given three meals a day and low doses of chlorpromazine.

Abstract: Relactation refers to the physiological process whereby human lactation is initiated at a time unrelated to the postpartum production of milk. This phenomenon has also been referred to as induced lactation or, in some instances, interrupted lactation in women who have weaned their infants and wish to resume breast-feeding. The relactation process can also be used to promote an increase in the milk supply of women who are already lactating.

Although relactation is an accepted fact in many cultures, even well-trained pediatricians in both the developed and developing countries may be unaware of the potential relactation has in good infant care.
