My latest passion is more personal to me. Almost 40 years ago I had nursing issues with one of my babies. With my first born there were no breastfeeding issues. However, I had a number of issues with my second born. He was a caesarean delivery, he weighed almost 10 lbs, had a voracious appetite and never seemed satisfied. I had severe pain, plugged ducts and mastitis a number of times. Sound familiar? I suffered in silence, because there was no one to guide me.
If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms a consultation for evaluation may be in order. If left untreated lip and tongue ties may cascade into multiple issues that become more difficult to correct as the infant becomes older.
