    Re: Tongue Tied Issue

    An SNS is a supplimental nursing system. Basically a little bag or bottle around your neck with a thin tube that attatches to your breast. Medela makes a super cheap one or the Lactaid is really...

    Re: Behavior Change

    Also, if he is getting 20 oz of milk from a bottle, he doesn't need more than 4 oz for his daily requirement. He may just not be hungry and wanting to massage his gums

    Re: Fewer wet diapers

    I agree with above poster :) This is about time they start going longer and holding it. As long as he is making at least 5-6 diapers at this age, he's fine! If you're really worried, just keep...
  4. Re: low supply? reflux? allergy? very confused!!

    Unless you weigh her every feeding, it's not very accurate on diagnosing low supply. But I highly doubt that is your issue. A full feeding is 2 oz and she ate more than that :) A dairy intolerance...

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    If it is just a lip tie, he won't have problems with solids, but a tongue tie may. Hope you have better luck the next doc!

    Re: Tongue Tied Issue

    Do you have access to an SNS? That could help him not get so frustrated and then you could slowly wean him off it once he realizes the breast means food. My DD got clipped at 4 months after 12+...

    Re: tongue tie

    I personally think all tongue ties should be clipped, it causes so many issues even if it is "minor." Check out Dr Brian Palmer's website for a bunch of great info and...

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    DD got her lip tie clipped when she was about 3 months, it was just done in the pedis office. Her's wasn't too bad though and she was very small. He just crushed it with a metal instrument while I...
  10. My Tongue Tie Journey *Please read if you have supply/weight gain/pain issues!*

    DD has always had issues nursing, from her very first attempt. I weaned her off the shield at 2 weeks, but she could never maintain a latch and even with my oversupply after bringing my milk in a...

    Re: Poor Weight Gain and Lip Tie

    I believe that could be a factor. If she has to work really hard to maintain a latch and is buring calories, her diaper count may be normal but weight will be an issue. Get it clipped! Even if it...

    Re: Upper lip tie? What say you?

    NOT normal, that is a super bad lip tie. I would definitely get it clipped now to prevent future dental problems and it will probably help with BF. My DD had a minor one and getting it clipped...
  13. Re: Mucous and watery poo and other problems...

    My DD has the exact same problems, the could be twins lol. Between 6-8 weeks, she lost an ounce and I had a super low supply. She was going up to 10 days without pooping, low diaper count, ect. We...

    Re: Posterior Tongue Tie

    I had a speech pathologist check for one and she didn't think she had one, but she also missed the lip tie, so I don't know if that could still be an issue. I am almost a cleft palate myself and had...

    My 8 week old DD was doing so good with BF until the last day or so. She was born a little under 37 weeks and had a very weak latch and trouble with my flat nipples. We used a nipple shield for a...
