Early last Thursday, we dropped Kaelynn off at my moms and headed towards Toronto. We were going to The Newman International Breastfeeding Clinic.
Harlow was born with a lip and tongue tie that was causing pain and feeding issues. It needed to be corrected. With the help of people close to us, we were able to raise funds to make the trip.
At the clinic, they assessed her and myself. It was determined that she did have ties and we weren't crazy. It was a simple procedure to get them releases though.
Everything worked out and instantly nursing was pain free. I was given instructions on how to do stretches to help them not reattach & a recommendation for herbs for me to take. So far, I think the Motherlove MORE MILK PLUS is helping.
We have a follow-up appointment this Thursday to check her mouth out again and make sure everything is how it should be. Here's hoping gas isn't extreme and PAN AM traffic is manageable.
