Induced non-peurperal lactation
A 42 yr old grand mother successfully established induced non-peurperal lactation after a gap of 23 yr to breast feed her motherless grand daughter. Subsequently we observed re-lactation in two post peurperal mothers. A plea is made to all medical personnel not to under estimate the establishment of re-lactation.
