Holy severe lip tie! Please help! *pics* **UPDATE***
Ok, so the biggest issue I have had with breastfeeding is the nipple pain! No matter what I do,3 week old DD cant get a good deep latch. My nipples are suffering, she slides of the breast, and gets fussy. Someone told me to check her for tounge or lip ties. I did.... and she has a BAD lip tie! Its so bad it goes all the way to the bottom of her top gum!
I am not sure who to see, or what to do from here, but I want our breastfeeding relationship to thrive! I feel like this is effecting her.... and me! Please help! Any info would be great!
Sorry the pics suck, they were my camera phone, and she was screaming and wiggling.... bebe doesnt like messed with!
So I took little lady to see a CLC today, and she does in fact have a tounge AND lip tie. We have a consultation next week with a specialist. I hope this makes things easier for us!!!!! :) On the plus side, Jaylah is 3 weeks old and has gained 1 pound 5 ounces from her lowest weight! GO boobie milk!
Just gotta power through the nipple pain for one more week!
