Gosh life has been crazy. I breastfeed for a month but then it was too painful to near so I watched to pumping. After a little but of course my supply stayed the same and his demand grew so I had to supplement. His pedi didn't want him to become underweight and I saw no other choice. I got really emotional after seeing my friend nurse her son and tried to go back. It was so painful I finally called the hospital I delivered at instead of his pedi. They had me come in and consult with the lactation consultant. I'm really frustrated cause it took now 4 months for someone to tell me that it is not normal for nursing to hurt. She looked and examined me nursing him and says she really thinks he has a posterior tongue tie. Pedi looked only at the obvious one I guess. Now I am taking DS to a specialist to hopefully solve the problem so I can nurse with no bottles or formula. I'm frustrated it took this long but I finally think I see a happy ending.
