So, no more mastitis - Yay! - but still dealing with a very shallow latch and pain for me. At his 4.5 month appointment, he weighed 15 lbs 8.9 oz and the nurse we saw said it was ok to start bananas, so we've given him a few bites here and there for funsies. But more and more (and thanks to this forum) I am beginning to suspect that he is partially tongue tied. But of course my pediatrician says "If you can't see the tip indent, it's not a tongue tie" and won't really check him for it.
Does anybody have good, solid, research on identifying tongue tie that I can give her? I have found some stuff that is interesting, but I am concerned that I will take my info to my pediatrician and she will sort of not take me seriously if the research is not good. Also—does anybody have a good ENT referral in Portland, Oregon, for tongue tie clipping, if it comes to that?
