Actually the second LC we saw said his jaw and back seemed really tight and told us to massage both but with everything the jaw sort of fell by the wayside.
I was in "early labor" for weeks. By the time I finally went to the hospital I went from a 4 to all the way dilated within a matter of minutes. They panicked about not being able to get monitors etc on so while I started pushing (not having gotten into bed yet!) they vacuumed him. The theory being that the vacuum made his back and jaw tight. We managed to relax his back a little, but gosh we just forgot about the jaw. Thanks for the reminder!
Auderey: We don't know if they'll clip it or not, and we need insurance to cover it. Tomorrow AM we go to the clinic LC (who we saw first and were NOT impressed with, she basically just tried for ten minutes and handed us formula samples) per his ped, to verify that the tie is causing a problem with his latch so that the doc can send us to the ENT to get it snipped. If the LC doesn't agree we're in for a long fight to figure out how to get this done. Assuming it needs done.
Between pumping sessions it just makes more sense to be naked, and they're always covered in milk as it is! Probably why they're not as bad as they could be.
Meanwhile we just nursed for maybe 10 minutes and I totally heard him swallowing but I'm SURE It was a bad latch, so maybe I'm one of the lucky ones with milk sinuses close to the nipples. He only wanted 20 Ml from the bottle afterwards.
