How old was your baby when they checked for the tongue tie? I only ask because my LO had a pretty well hidden posterior tongue tie - the pediatric dentist first saw him at 2 months and said NO tongue tie but then I was urged by my LC to go back because she did detect the tie ( was only really visible when he was crying hard is what LC said) so I made another appointment after LO had turned 3 months and same dentist said YEP, LO did have a posterior tie. I asked why wasn't the dentist able to see it last month and her answer was that now that LO's mouth is bigger the tie was more visible. We had the tie released the same day.
Does your LO have a tight jaw? I don't know if Poland has chiropractors for babies? My LO has been going to chiropractor since he was born and it has really helped with nursing too. Also we went to feeding therapy, this really help getting LO used to having things far back in his mouth - he had a shallow latch and would gag and choke on anything that would go far back into his mouth. We did a lot of exercises with his mouth. He's now 8 months old and nurses well, I can't remember the last time it hurt to nurse. It was a really rough start for us, but I'm so happy now. For me the pain, sleepless nights, fussy baby, was all with it.
If you do decide to stop BF have you considered pumping? Good luck, I do hope it gets better for you both.
