Re: How can I reintroduce the breast? Help!
Also, have you considered having your child's clipped? If the tie is severe enough to restrict tongue movement, it can cause problems long after infancy including speech problems. Clipping is done with a numbing agent in the dr's office and takes less than 2 minutes from numbing to nursing freely! Since your baby is a little older, it may take him a week or so to realize that he can use his tongue, so hang in there and be patient. AND don't believe your ped if they tell you that tongue's aren't clipped any more, ask for a referral to an ENT, ped surgeon, ped oral maxillofacial surgeon, etc. It is a simple procedure that may save your nipples and your son a lot of agony.
