Re: 3 Weeks Post-Frenectomy and Still Pain with Nursing
Welcome to the forum!
My first daughter has a lip tie and probably had a posterior tongue tie when she was an infant. Neither were ever diagnosed- well, the lip tie was finally diagnosed by her dentist, at age 7!- or corrected, and she caused me significant nipple pain and trauma for her first 4.5 months of life. But eventually she and her mouth grew enough that she was able to nurse without me having to pump or supplement, and without causing me pain or damage. It just took time.
If it were me, I personally would want to make sure my baby didn't have additional ties (like lip) and that the tongue tie was clipped enough. Other than that, I think I'd be summoning all my patience.
