Mama, it's very rare for baby to only have a lip tie. LO is most likely ptt as well. Check out the fb group tongue tie babies support group.

ETA, I see you mentioned tongue tie in your first post, sry. Honestly, I would encourage you to get the lip and tongue clipped by someone who knows what they are doing. The fb group has Drs listed by city/state that are experienced diagnosing and clipping tiea.

I am in the same boat. I have 4 kids, one is 15 so he is easy. THe others are 3 and 4 and special needs to boot. Add a baby that I am constantly worried that my supply is not good for. It is stressful. I hear ya on showering and life. It can take days for one of us to bath with these kids around. Laundry is piling up, clean and dirty. I finally got through it and now have more. It just never ends. I live to go potty as it is like my only time and even sometimes the 3 yr old has to join me to hand me toilet paper for my china...LOL!

I too finally said screw it, if that night bottle makes him happy and go to sleep, then so be it. I am not going to make bedtime any more stressful than it is with 3 kids going down at the same time. Once I get the lip tie fixed, if they choose to, I hope he will have a stronger latch and make my supply better. Then we will deal with it.

I'm sorry you're having a rough time, mama. I remember how tough the early months were, and I only have one kiddo!

Posterior tongue tie. Eh, some dentists are qualified, but often not. Check out the fb page tongue tie babies supporr group. They have a list of drs, dentist, ibclcs, etc that specialize in tongue ties. It's listed by city/state and you can find who is closest to you.
