My son is 10 wks today and 3 days ago had TT clipped. I didn't know he had TT but ended up with a lactation cons as I'd been having so many problems with him and she spotted it straight away.
It wasn't a classic TT case as I wasn't really sore and he was gaining loads of weight. However, he had reflux symptoms, wind and colic and very fussy, she feels it's all linked to the TT. Seems his feeding isn't as efficient as I thought, he is mainly taking foremilk and also swallowing a lot of air making for a very miserable baby (and mum).
Anyway, I want to know whether I need to teach him to feed properly as such or whether he will work it out? He seems to finish so quickly or fall asleep I need him to latch deeper and continue to feed to get hindmilk too. It has only been a few days and LC said probably take a couple of weeks to see improvement but I wanted to see if anyone had advice or been in similar situation. I'm starting to feel if I can't get it to work soon whether I can continue and I so want to EBF for at least 6 mths hopefully 12. Thanks very much x
