Re: Will it get better? Posterior tongue tie & high arch pal
I would seek a second opinion on the tongue tie. If a TT is impacting breastfeeding, then I don't understand why it can't be corrected.
My firstborn may have had an undetected posterior tie, and she definitely did have an extremely short tongue and a very high palate. That combination literally tore my nipples to shreds, and caused my daughter to have a lot of difficulty transferring milk. I had to supplement with formula, pump, and I did use an at-the-breast supplemental feeder for a while.
I honestly thought I would never heal and would never, ever enjoy nursing my baby. But i was able to ditch the supplements by 3 months, and at around 5-5.5 months, the cracks suddenly healed. By the time I had been nursing for a year- which was my original goal- I enjoyed nursing so much that I continued to nurse my daughter until her 3rd birthday.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
