 So some of you may know that my daughter is 4 weeks old, and had a tounge and lip tie. I have been in SOOO much pain nursing.

Today we went to the doctor. She is a pediatrician, but specializes in " breastfeeding medicine". They evaluated a nursing session, and pinpointed the problems.

First, they gave baby girl an "adjustment" (spinal and neck), because her neck and jaw were extremely tight, and it helped relax her tight mouth.

Then, they found a new hold for me to nurse her in that is more comftorable for the both of us.

They took a breastmilk culture and found that I had an infection from one of my breasts (I have a cracked nipple from the bad nursing), so they gave me two creams and antibiotics to take.

Then they clipped both of her ties, and reevaluated us....

NURSING HURTS WAY LESS WORSE!! YAY! Its not perfect yet, because the cracked nip and infection are painful, but the pain had a DRAMATIC decrease.

I am so freaking happy right now!

And to top it off, my little preemie was 5 pounds 12 ounces at birth, went down to 5 pounds 5 ounces, was then hospitalized with RSV for a week.... today she is a month old, and weighs 6 pounds 15 ounces! That means from her lowest weight she has gained 1 pound, 10 ounces.... thats freaking awesome for all the issues we have been having... and for her to only be a month old!

Happy mamma today :)

Hooray! I wish everyone had that kind of help from doctors while breastfeeding. That should be the standard of care!

Can you tell us the name and city of the doctor you saw?
