I noticed earlier this week with the help of the health department LC that DD has an upper lip tie. The LC said that could be the cause of our BFing issues (nursing for a hour, having trouble staying latched, only 1oz transfer, falling asleep VERY fast at the breast, pulling head back while nursing, dropped weight first 3 weeks of life). I brought it up to the hospital LC when I had my follow-up appointment today. She said her upper lip tie is very tight. She made a call to our Pedi and we went straight there. Our Pedi does not seem to think it is causing our BFing issues, but put in a referral to an ENT. The LC said she does not see many of the upper lip ties and the other LC said she has not known anyone to get it clipped.
Anyone has experience with the upper lip tie? Did you get it clipped? Did it help with the BFing?
They also recommend Craniosacral Therapy. Anyone have experience with that helping with BFing issues?
