I want to get the word out about tongue tie because my son's was missed by every doctor, nurse, and lactation consultant we saw. The little guy started out knowing just what to do and latched just fine. But nursing was extremely painful and he always fell asleep shortly after starting. I developed nipple trauma, he lost weight and got jaundice. We started pumping and giving him bottled breastmilk. Things got better but the little guy never seemed very interested in eating, I just assumed it was nipple preference combined with being a fussy eater. Then I saw another baby cry and eat from a bottle and a light bulb went off in my head - my baby's mouth looked really different. Went to the doctor got the tongue tie diagnosed and are looking into treatment. Sadly it may be too late to get our Lo back on the breast but if tongue tie is caught early it is really easy to fix and can (apparently) make a huge difference.
