She "nurses" but there is no real latch so I have to hold her so the milk will go down her throat so she can feel it and then swallow which isnt working well either at the moment. It should all be better after today. She has a Posterior tongue tie and I just had a feeling after Sarah mentioned hers with Charlotte (I believe). Norah can't lift the back of her tongue up to suck properly and an ibclc found it for me when my midwife begged her to see me free of charge because something was really wrong with my baby after being very dehydrated 1 wk after birth. I have milk and am pumping but I've been using donor breastmilk as well. Will update after surgery today. It is done in office with an expert dr here in south Florida and if all goes textbook we should be nursing swimmingly by lunch time!
