So I was finally able to get okay pictures of his tongue and lip. And would love opinions about them before I go to the surgeon (still waiting on an appt) I just want to go in prepared and konwledgable about everything ya know
So what do y'all say???

Oh and just a little update about everything we went for follow up bloodwork to see how his liver enzyme levels are and I am waiting on a call back sometime between now and tmrw for the results of that. And we have a weight check appt on the 14th. Otherwise things are going great with our routine and I am slowly increasing his feeds so he gets full feeds.

He appears to be both lip and tongue tied. Have you checked the resources sticky for the section on ties? Until you get them revised, using your pumped milk in an SNS could be vital to your supply and your nursing relationship.

You need to increase his feeding so he's getting 24 ounces per day minimum, and quickly.

That is what I am working on but if I feed him too much he spits a lot of it back up. We are up to 18oz a day that he is tolerating. And I am actively working on getting him to 24 oz a day. He should be to that by the end of the week.
