Re: 5 weeks old and tongue-tied
Except in rare cases, milk supply issues don't happen spontaneously. There's a reason why supply is low. Poor milk transfer, as can happen with a poor latch or a tongue-tied baby, is a common cause. Scheduled feedings, thyroid problems, retained placenta fragments, or the negative impact of hormonal contraception can also be to blame.
