How does one keep breastfeeding? My poor baby gets super frustrated anymore trying to nurse....I have little to no support from hubby or others. My mom only nursed me for a few weeks but was told I had reflux and put me on formula.
I feel at my wits end I have used all my resources

You've checked our list of tongue tie specialists? I'd travel to see one, whatever the distance. NOT  clipping the tie can have SERIOUS consequences and it's pretty rare for breastfeeding to continue when there is one.

I don't know what to adivse you. Do what you can, but expect that you will need to supplement without getting the tie clipped.

I would find a way to fork over the money to fix it - even if you don't fix it now, it can cause problems later too.

It depends on the how much of a tongue tie the baby has.

If your baby can stick out its tongue and therefore some tongue can reach its botton lip, it is fine regardless of tongue tie. The tongue will eventually loosen with time..

My son had a tongue tie which I did not clip as I think clipping the tongue when it is not necessary is just plain mean. If your baby can latch and suckle then a tongue tie does not need to be clipped. In some cases they do; if for improper latch or unable to hold your nipple..

Books have been really helpful when it comes to nursing.
"The complete book of breastfeeding" is a good source I've found.

So you have insurance and just can't get a referral? I saw my local resource on the list without any referrals. I just made an appt and went and gave them my insurance info, I know all insurance is different. Worth a try to see what they require.
