    I also noticed that she has the tissue. That goes from her lip and wraps around her her teeth. Does that affect latch?

    yes, lip tie can affect latch. So can a 'small' tt. On the other hand, even with physical issues, Latch does sometime improve enough on its own to make frenotomy not needed, on the other hand, these are typically minor procedures (well, tt is, I don’t know much about lip tie) so there is not typically a big downside to doing them. Yes, it may not help. But it might. kwim?
    if latch is improving enough that you can continue to heal while nursing That is a good sign. But continued pain is a red flag. If latch is improving then nursing should start feeling better-not pain free, but better, even while nipples heal.

    scabbing is a sign of healing. scabbing is often a good sign after nipple injury has occurred.
