My 10-week-old has a shallow latch that I can't seem to correct. The last LCs I saw seemed to say that since she's so old, it probably can't be corrected which dismays me. I'm not in pain anymore but I had a terrible loss of supply at 2 weeks which was only brought back by domperidone and lots of pumping. I would like to stop or at least cut down on the dom and the pumping but I can't do that until I know that she nurses effectively. She transfers milk fine now but I've built an oversupply and the milk is readily available. I'm afraid of what will happen when my supply is not so robust.
I've seen a few IBCLCs and no one mentioned lip tie or tongue tie, though she does have many of the symptoms. One did note that her tongue is slightly heart-shaped but she dismissed it since she can stick it out fine. It has been suggested that I get her checked out at the local well known oral motor place, but I had a bad experience and I believe a misdiagnosis with my first so I'm reluctant to go back there. There is an ENT in town I've heard treats tongue tie but I'm not sure if I need a referral.
On one hand, I think I'm ridiculous for thinking that a lip tie or tongue tie is causing her problems. Then sometimes it seems plausible and I want to do anything I can to have a successful breastfeeding experience. I have a couple pictures, what do the educated ladies on here think?
