Yes you can relactate.  It's going to take alot of work from you.   You're going to have to start putting your baby to the breast to feed regularly, keep in mind that for a while she won't be getting anything so you'll still have to bottle feed.  Also you are going to have to start pumping to keep that stimulation up.  You may not see any results for a few days to a couple of weeks.  It's going to take alot of time and alot of effort.  Good luck and I hope it all works out for you.
