I have been meaning to post this for quite some time. I want to provide some potential help for moms with LOs that are having latch problems. I spent many nights reading this message board for support and feel like I should give a little back! My LO (now 14 months) had difficultly maintaining her latch. She would come off the breast every few seconds and would nurse forever (20 - 30 minutes per side) but still seem hungry. She also made this loud suckling noise whenever she nursed or drank from a bottle. So I pumped exclusively for almost 3 months and gave bottles, but continued to work on the latch at least once a day. I refused to give up on the breastfeeding and finally my pediatrician referred me to a doctor who was a breastfeeding specialist because we wondered if my LO was tongue tied. The specialist did not think that a tongue tie was the problem, but she suggested I bring my LO to an osteopath doctor nearby who specialized in infants. I was not familiar with osteopathic medicine (google it if you are not either), but the specialist had seen it work on other babies. The doctor laughed and told me that it seemed a little like voodoo magic, but that it does seem to work. So I gave it a try, and after about 3 visits my LO stopped making that horrible suckling noise, and after about 5 visits her latch was fixed!! She became a breastfeeding champ by about 4 months. I was so thankful and now we are still nursing at 14 months. It was a very gentle non-invasive treatment. So if you are having latch problems it might be worth looking for osteopath doctors in your area. Good luck.
