My LO is 6 weeks old now. Since day 1 we were having problems with latching.I was new to the pain, i could not handle it so for the first 2 weeks i was exclusively pumping and formula fed at least once or twice a day. and then after that I put her back on my breast, but I was in pain still. I've seen the LC to help me with positioning, it worked when she was helping me with latching however when the LC was gone and I have to do it on my own, latching was difficult again. My nipples were sore and there was blanching after the feeding. On top of this, I developed a blister on my right areola which doubles the pain. I went to the pediatrician and found out that my LO was a little bit tongue-tied, the ped clipped it, She also ruled out thrush. I thought since the tongue-tied is fixed it will be better. But I'm still in pain. Seen the LC again the 2nd time to help me with positioning again but this time LO would not latched correctly even with the LC's assistance. LC said LO needs to open her mouth wider and since her tongue was just clipped, I should give it time so she can stick out her tongue. It's been 3 days now and nothing seems to be helping. I am so desperate that I almost quit this morning. I am still in pain and I am so dependent on ibuprofen to at least ease out the pain a little bit.
I am so stressed out and don't know what to do at this point.
