    Default Refusing left side

    I've posted several times about my sons lip/tongue tie. He got them released last week and everything seemed to be going fine, but now he's refusing to nurse on the left side. Before the last few days he's always preferred the left and now he throws himself back and cries when I try to latch him on that side. I've also had some minor dull aching in that nipple that I haven't had before. I don't know if the latch feels so different that he isn't figuring out what to do on the left as well as before or if there is something else going on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Have you contacted an IBCLC? They offer incredible support.
