LisaFaith, that is exciting news. I am glad you are seeing evidence in the poops! My son also was able to nurse a little, just not to empty my breasts until we fixed the tongue tie.
Here is the American Acadamy of Pedicatric's newsletter that discusses the four types of tongue-tie. Some doctors are not at all familiar with the different types and think that if the tie is not on the tip it isn't a true tongue tie. But (as the article says) the further back tongue ties can actually interfere with nursing more than the tip tongue-ties.
you made me cry! Thank you!!! Both for your breastfeeding encouragement and for your homeschooling encouragement. It means a lot to hear that a hs'ed graduate appreciates all the work that mom put into it. It is a lot. There are many days that I ask myself WHY do we do this. But really, I already know the answer. I love being with my kids and letting them learn at there own pace instead of being stuffed into a conveyor belt system (and the amazing part is that when they go at there own pace, they get ahead!).
