My DD is 7 weeks old and hasn't been able to bf. I can't believe I've had the exact same issues that I had with my DS. Two babies that fed exactly the same way. Everyone told me no two babies feed the same yet my two babies have had the exact issues. And I mean exact to a tee.
Both my bubs have been tongue tied, anterior, posterior and upper lip, two scissor revisions each as well. DD is booked to see a dentist to get laser treatment as I think she still has too much lip tie and is extending under her top Palate.
With dd I managed 5 weeks of exclusive breastmilk through using shield, finger feeding, suck training, Supply line, pumping after each feed to aid in her attachment to breast. She has struggled big time and just cannot attach. I've also had mastitis 3 times in a month and each time it takes a knock to my supply meaning more pumping to build supply as baby cant attach.
I also attended tresillian for a week to see if baby could feed, but no attachment. I've now switched dd to formula as pumping with a toddler is unsustainable.
no real point to this thread, just wanted to vent my frustration with babies not being able to bf. So frustrating.
Anyone else been in this situation?
