Re: Latching, but not moving milk
I'm not sure, but I have good news. Right after I posted this, I put him to the breast and he moved milk. Emptied my right breast in about 15-20 minutes. It was a beautiful thing.
Plus would you have to use an sns all the time?
Many times before and after. Another appointment on Monday.
I am still confused about when the IBCLC saw you and baby-pre or post clip?
She does the weight check everytime we see her.
Did your IBCLC do more than one pre/post nursing weight check? How often are you checking weight gain at this point? How is babies output? (poops)
Is nursing comfortable for you now? Is baby nursing a minimum of 12 times a day? Have you tried breast compressions for improving intake?
His weight gain at this point is fine. 50 grams a day
His output is about as often as he eats, sometimes twice as often as he eats.
See, nursing wasn't uncomfortable for me to begin with--which was what baffled the IBCLC. She said typically with tongue tie, the latch hurts. His didn't and it seemed fine. He averages 16 ish times a day.
The IBCLC said that since he had his frenulum snipped, she would take it as a tincture of time thing.. and see me again in a week. To keep getting him to breast often.
I have been--and it's paid off. He gets to breast, he latches, his suck is sturdy, and he moves milk now. We just have to wait til Monday to see her again to see exactly how much milk he's moving at one time.
