Hi all! Sorry to have disappeared the way I did. We had Addie's two week appointment a couple weeks ago and discovered she was over a pound under birth weight, even though she had been gaining at last check. Turns out she has what we're pretty sure is a posterior tongue tie, and itt impacts her nursing. After a couple weeks, she's back up to birth weight and I'm not having to fight to wake her/keep her awake for every feeding. Since things have stabilized, I should be around more. :)

Great to hear from you Liz! Glad you pinpointed Addie's tongue-tie early. I've me so many women whose ped's didn't know and they had so many struggles with BFing.

Looking forward to having you around again! Post some more baby pics!! :-)

I'm glad you could catch the problem early on! I'm sure things will go smoothly now.

BTW, show us some pics of the little princess!
