I'm so mentally exhausted over all of this breastfeeding stuff. I have an appt with an ENT on Wednesday, but I don't know if he uses a laser, which is overwhelmingly recommended. I watched dr. Kotlow's video and am convinced that DS has a PTT in addition to his ULT. I met with an IBCLC yesterday and she's assured me that things will be better after DS gets clipped but I just can't help but feel so negative. DS is 5mo and 1wk and I've been struggling with weight gain since he was less than a week old. I have the posts to prove it. To date, I'm on the couch for at least 5-6 hours after work nursing, and leave the house maybe one time per weekend. We cosleep. Still , minimum weight gain. If we're told that nothing can be done about his ties, I'm done. I've written these pathetic pity me posts before, but I feel empty. Like I have no more energy to put into this. This isn't easier than formula. This isn't easier than EPing. This has been a nightmare since day one. And I can't even put into words how irate I am that this wasnt caught by a doctor. This is my last attempt at giving it my all.
Can anyone share their story of improved nursing/ weight gain post frenectomy?
Sorry for the pathetic post . Everyone near and dear to me is sick of hearing me talk about breastfeeding and my troubles. You're all I've got.
