My 3 week old son has a mild posterior tongue tie and a quite thick upper lip tie. It causes him to have a shallow latch and swallow a lot of air. The air leaves him gassy and miserable. Just to be safe, I eliminated dairy a little over 3 weeks ago and stopped taking my prenatal. I know his latch is problematic because he clicks, squeaks and milk dribbles out of his mouth.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I'm trying to find a doc to clip the lip tie, but am having problems finding anyone to do it. Most docs are telling me he will break it on his own during a fall when he's learning to walk. That sounds barbaric, and doesn't help with my breastfeeding challenge!
I like to consider myself breastfeeding knowledgeable--I'm tandem nursing my 3.5 year old--but haven't been able to find much about lip ties! Ironically, I had a lip tie that my ped clipped when I was 3 weeks old.
