Re: Help with latch
Sorry you're in such pain, mama!
The first thing I would do is to seek a second opinion about the tongue tie, preferably from an IBCLC who can watch you nurse and can help you figure out if this is something that will respond to time and positioning, or if you and baby would both benefit from have the TT released. Whether or not a TT needs to be dealt with depends not on how the tongue feels to the LC's finger, but rather on how much it impacts breastfeeding.
Are you seeing breakdown of the nipple? Scabs, cracks, blisters?
