    I think you're right that my baby has gotten used to my...
  2. Anything to increase lowered supply after mastitis???

    Let me just start of by saying this forum and website has been so helpful for me on my breastfeeding journey. We've had quite a few challenges along the way and I seem to have another challenge...
  3. Re: Still confused about nipple placement...

    That helped quite a bit! Things aren't perfect still but less painful.

    @sugarfoot289, glad to know that it can and probably will continue to improve each day. I'm hopeful that one day...
  4. Re: Still confused about nipple placement...

  5. Still confused about nipple placement...

    Where exactly are you supposed to face the nipple when inserting into baby's mouth? I have been pointing the nipple up towards the roof of baby's mouth since the start and always end up with a line...
  6. Re: Tips to prevent initial clamping of jaws?

    Thank you for the tips! My little guy is ALWAYS hungry and always seems ravenous each time we feed. I do try to pay attention to the initial hunger signs and feed him before he starts...
  7. Re: Tips to prevent initial clamping of jaws?

    We typically use the cross cradle position or cradle. I tried the football hold but find it harder to get a deeper latch (same with the side lying position). I'll try making sure our torsos are...

    Thanks! The latch is pretty deep - he is clamping on my areola so I'm sure it hurts less than it would be if he clamped on nipple but hurts nevertheless!

    I last saw the LC at about the 5th week mark - when there was still visible nipple injury from the first month of pure pain but it was on the way to getting better. The explanation I got from the LC...
  13. Re: Two month baby still has poor latch and nurses all the t

    @momma - thanks for the info re: bottles. I didn't realize 4oz is a lot! He just always seems so hungry!

    @lilmeg - My appointments with the 2 LCs (4 appointments total) were not nearly as...

    Thank you for the support! I made an appointment with a pediatric ENT in the area who has experience with tongue tie.
