Re: High Pallet and Thick Frenulum are dimishing my supply

What if you pumped for 10 minutes after several of your nursing sessions each day? Are you drinking enough water and taking the fenugreek? I've heard high protien snacks and eating oatmeal each day are helpful for ramping up supply. My DS (4 wks old) has a high palate, slightly recessed chin, HAD a tight posterior tongue tie that was clipped, but he still doesn't latch wonderfully. I get sore everytime and he only nurses through the let down. I mostly pump and bottle feed him to protect my supply and give him the right balance of foremilk/hindmilk so that he isn't fussy and slow to grow. Hopefully someday, as he grows, he will be able to nurse better!
