Re: Lip tied 1week old!
My son has a pretty thick lip tie and was never really able to flange his top lip out like it's "supposed" to look like. I actually find it more comfortable when he tucks it in. One thing that really worked for us was laid-back positioning which I was initially doing for different reasons, but it really seemed to allow him to work around the lip tie, and hurt me less, too. I have a pretty forceful letdown so I never had to worry about transferal, but perhaps breast compressions while nursing would help. You can be sure she's getting enough if she has adequate wet and dirty diapers for her age and gaining weight well.
Good luck with the clip!(we never got it done and are doing great at 9 mo, but if I'd known, I bet it would have helped)
