    Upper lip tie- what to do?

    To give you a little background, my baby was born 6 weeks premature and was in the NICU for 12 days. He was given mostly the bottle while there. I was only allowed to nurse him once a day and I was...
  5. Re: Shallow, painful latch with 34-weeker who just reached t

    Hello again!! I'm here with an update and another question.

    The other day I tried exclusively breastfeeding my baby on the left breast only. By the fourth feed my nipple was very sore and I was...

    Hello again. I'm here with an update and some new questions!

    A couple days ago I saw an occupational therapist/lactation consultant at Seattle Children's Hospital. She looked at my son's mouth...
  7. Re: Shallow, painful latch with 34-weeker who just reached t

    Is olive oil safe for consumption by baby? I tried using olive oil just now and it felt better than the lanolin, but I may have applied too much and a little bit got in the milk.
  8. Re: Shallow, painful latch with 34-weeker who just reached t

    I'm not doing much to care for my nipples. My doctor prescribed me some creams, because I thought I might have some sort of infection. One is for yeast, one for bacterial infection and one is for...

    By the way, I tried to put quotes from your post, like you did, but I couldn't figure out how to do it.

    One other question. The other night, it seemed to me that baby magically latched on. I...

    Hello lllmeg and thank you so much for your reply!

    In response to your questions, baby is now 6 and half weeks actual (not adjusted). He was born on October 16th and was due November 24th. He...
  12. Re: Shallow, painful latch with 34-weeker who just reached t

    And I should mention that I'm no longer using the nipple shield. One lactation consultant suggested trying without and he was able to latch on (but it's still shallow). I have very large breasts...

    My baby boy was born at 34 weeks. I had planned to breastfeed, but was not very educated about it. He was in the NICU for two weeks. I was encouraged to pump to get my milk supply started from the...
