    Re: Struggling for 12 weeks

    Yes. He does not have a tongue tie (anterior or posterior), but he does have a small upper lip tie. There aren't any doctors around here that think that upper lip ties affect breastfeeding...

    Struggling for 12 weeks

    I'm not sure if I should be posting here or in the 3 months + board, as my little one will be 3 months old in a few days, but figured I would start here.

    I have been struggling with breastfeeding...

    Sorry, I meant a tenth of an ounce. lol
  4. Re: Trouble breastfeeding . . . LC says baby is tight?

    I don't think so. It takes a while for my let down to come. Also, he barely softens my breast when he breastfeeds, and when I pump it gets much softer (and I am only able to pump 30 oz a day if I...
  5. Re: Trouble breastfeeding . . . LC says baby is tight?

    The baby does not transfer milk when breastfeeding alone. In fact, he didn't transfer milk with the shield before either, so the milk being transferred with the shield is a new thing. I have done...
  6. Re: Trouble breastfeeding . . . LC says baby is tight?

    Neither of the other two IBCLC's mentioned a physical barrier. They both said that he just needed to grow (they work together at the hospital I delivered at).

    The appointment lasted for a little...

    Re: Just about ready to quit and ff

    One thing that worked to get rid of the shield with my last little one was to wait until halfway through the feeding, and then try to latch him on without the shield. It took a few tries, but...
  8. Trouble breastfeeding . . . LC says baby is tight?

    Hello again!

    I took the advice from those of you here, and had a home visit from a LC today, thinking the one on one help would help us get back on track with breastfeeding.

    The LC said that...

    Your story sounds very similar to mine. The advice the pp's gave is great. I just wanted to let you know a little about my story in case it helps at all.

    If you are pumping 2 oz every 2 hours...

    Re: Pluged duct? Tips please

    For me, the best remedy is warm compresses while feeding/pumping. You can even put hot water in a diaper, and use that. It will stay warmer longer than a washcloth. I used to get them all of the...

    Re: Trouble latching

    Oh! And, she had me start using the nipple shield because I couldn't get him latched onto the SNS correctly. The shield made it easier to get the latch down. I did get him latched on a couple of...

    Re: Trouble latching

    I thought he had a nipple preference because he wouldn't latch onto my breast without the nipple shield. I did get him to latch on yesterday evening without the nipple shield, but I have to have the...

    Re: Can lip tie affect latch?

    Thank you for your replies. His is an upper lip tie, and his lip neither rolls out or in. It kind of just sits straight (maybe a little inward if I had to pick a direction). I saw an IBCLC, but...

    Re: Trouble latching

    I am pumping and trying to nurse, but he has developed a nipple preference in the last 24 hours. My IBCLC had me try using a nipple shield to see if that would help, and now he won't latch without...

    Trouble latching

    Hello,

    My son is 3 weeks old, and we are still having trouble getting our latch down. I went to see my IBCLC today, and she told me the latch was pretty bad, but couldn't get a better latch...

    My name is Amanda, and I just gave birth to my third son 12 days ago. I have struggled with breastfeeding all three of my boys.
