My dd is tongue tied she's 5 weeks old and we've been struggling with breastfeeding and I've been having supply problems upon the lactation consultants advice I feed her for 15 minutes on each breast then give her a bottle then pump because she isn't getting much from my breasts we are supposed to go in the 10th for a consultation visit with an ent about getting her clipped but at this point I am very worn down and very frustrated because now when I go to feed her I can get her latched as long as my milk is coming easy but as soon as it slows she starts fussing and refusing the breast. She can get the milk easier from a bottle but I also don't get enough when I pump to supplement with breast milk. I've been pumping after most feedings but my supply hasn't increased enough for her trying to pump after every time is difficult. I'm hoping my supply will increase after we get her clipped but if she refuses to latch to my breast I don't see how that will be possible so my question is what can I do to reverse nipple confusion?
