    A (happy) update

    I posted a few times a while ago. My daughter has a tongue tie and we've had latch issues since day one. Anyways, I worried myself to death over whether she was getting enough or gaining enough...
  2. Re: Spacing out feedings to get a better latch?

    Thanks.

    I'm going to see when I can go have the tie revised. We had an appointment today but things came up and we couldn't travel that far so I was just going to try therapy. I spoke with the...
  3. Re: Spacing out feedings to get a better latch?

    Oh, and she didn't advise against getting it snipped. I asked her if she thought it would help but she wasn't sure either way. If it doesn't improve in the next couple of weeks, I'll suck it up and...
  4. Re: Spacing out feedings to get a better latch?

    On the "really hungry" thing - she didn't mean to wait until she was starving. She feels like DD never has a chance to actually get hungry because she's grazing all day. I feel like she never has a...
  5. Spacing out feedings to get a better latch?

    DD has a posterior tongue tie. I decided we would try therapy first before getting it snipped because she does seem to have good movement and she seems to have issues not related to the tie that are...
  6. Re: Latch Problems: Not putting tongue over gums

    Another update: She was just tired. Still has a bad latch.

    I quit using the shields. I've noticed no improvement and I think her latch sounds better on them just because of the material...
  7. Re: Latch Problems: Not putting tongue over gums

    Saw the LC. She doesn't think her TT is tight enough to cause the problem, at least not now that her mouth has grown more. She said she is moving her tongue wrong and that we may need to go see a...
  8. Re: Latch Problems: Not putting tongue over gums

    She's blushing over here!:lol

    I'm going to see the LC at 2:00 so hopefully I'll get some good tips, a professional opinion that it is affecting breastfeeding, and maybe she'll even know a doctor...

    Furthest she would stick it out at 5 weeks -

  10. Re: Latch Problems: Not putting tongue over gums

    I'm in central Louisiana. I'll be calling a local IBCLC on Monday to see if we can work something out.

    I do try to pump when I can.. I tried while she's nursing but she likes to kick it.:shrug

  11. Latch Problems: Not putting tongue over gums

    We've had latch problems since day one. Anyways, my DD is now seven weeks old. We just recently, after seeing three ENTs, got it confirmed that she does have a posterior tongue tie. However,...
  12. Re: Tongue Sucking - Any way to correct this?

    She's 6 days old today also. Which makes me feel even worse because I feel like giving up so soon. :( It's really important to me but I woke up earlier so dizzy I felt like I was drunk. I know...
  13. Tongue Sucking - Any way to correct this?

    I spoke with a lactation consultant (which I can't see often - I don't have transportation during the day) and she told me my newborn is sucking on her tongue while latched on, and she ends up...
