“I never thought breastfeeding would be such a big struggle for me”
Both my babies were born with tongue and lip ties, and this caused a lot of breastfeeding grief for us.
My husband and I learnt that we really had to advocate for our babies to get the help that we so desperatly needed during this difficult time.
Thinking back, I remember how overwhelming everything was, while we were right in “the thick of it”.
There is so much to navigate as a mom, like getting your baby’s tongue tie assessed properly. And finding a truly qualified provider, who knows when a revision is appropriate and how to properly release a tongue tie. A revision, on it’s own, is often not the “silver bullet” it’s sometimes maid out to be. Oftent, more help is needed to really get breastfeeing on track.
I’m not a expert on the topic. I’m just a mom, who has gone through this crazy journey twice.
I love sharing, with fellow moms, what I’ve learnt along the way. My goal is to meet you where you’re at and share resources, that I trust as a mom. I will help you learn about the topic quickly, so that you can decide what’s best for you and your little one.
Here are some helpful resources to get you started:
I hope this helps you on your journey to finding help and reaching your breastfeeding goals with your little one!
