Hi there. Been following other threads dealing with similar stuff, but dont want to take over so I thought I would post a new one.
So.. things are going well I'm pretty sure and so thankful for LLL, TWAB, knowledgable ladies on these forums! I KNOW I wouldnt be where I am today with it. IT is SO unbelievable to really face the reality that there is NO real BF support within 1 hour from me, like meetings for example. There are a few LC's here in town, and my PED, and they are supportive, but not really- "into' it enough to know the ins and outs. I do appreciate them and their help though, hate to knock them. SO here is my deal... LO is almost 12 weeks old, could we be losing a good latch only on one breast? It seems like the left side has always been an issue, like he prefers the right side, squirms more on the left, and actually it is starting to HURT. Twists his little head and its all I can doto keep him on there. Im still tryingto relax more and not worry about time and minutes. Its like he hates the left side! Ive tried opening his mouth more, diff positions. thinking pos thoughts and relaxing. Is it too late to fix a bad latch? YOu know I am wondering at this point about a possible lip tied? His top lip rearely flips out but it never concerned me bc the right side was fine and I prob overlooked it just thinking some pain was normal? ANY advice is welcome! Thanks
PS- I just got some hand me down carriers!! YAY so glad. A Moby and bjorn. any tips on how to nurse wearing the babe? I heard ergo was the tops for that though? ANyone selling one in good condition? Thanks again!
