My DD was born with a lip and tongue tie we didn't know about until 3 weeks old. She was admitted for failure to thrive at 9 days old when I started pumping and bottling. I worked with 3 LCs but she was very ineffective at nursing even after the ties were released. Up until about 10 days ago I was still attempting to nurse but I gave up and decided to EPF. Well the other day I got the urge to nurse her and she did really well for once. I saw an LC today who thought she was nursing effectively. I've decided to try nursing for the next few days and see if she seems satisfied and is gaining weight. I'm just really scared she won't transfer milk effectively and lose weight again. She was quite content to stave and you would have had no idea she was hungry. She was so lethargic but I'm an obstetrical nurse and knew her behavior wasn't normal. I really want to just BF because I hate pumping. Similar success stories would be great!
