It is possible to breastfeed an adopted baby but it takes a lot of work and patience. If you are considering inducing lactation so you can breastfeed an adopted baby I strongly encourage you to meet with a certified lactation consultant as soon as possible.

If you are not able to lactate enough for your adopted baby or in time for your adopted baby to arrive you can supplement with formula or even donated breastmilk.

Some birth mothers are even willing to pump milk for the baby and send it to the adoptive parents to feed to the baby.
