I EBF my boy and he is thriving! At his 3 month appointment he weighed 17.6 pounds, however the more I had read the more I thought he had a lip tie and our Dr confirmed it. (Just lip, no tongue tie) His top lip folds inwards instead of flaring out which I think is causing a shallow latch as he often slips off. I am not in pain while feeding but do think it would be more comfortable with a deeper latch, but am overall happy with how it is going. Obviously he is getting enough to eat so I am just wondering if anyone has either opted out of getting it corrected and continued a successful breastfeeding relationship OR had it done around this age or later. I am thinking of making an appointment with a lactation consultant soon to discuss this but thought I'd throw it out for your opionions/ experience first. My boy has been through a lot in his short little life and I just feel so bad putting him through any more than I have to, however if it is something that needs to be dealt with I'd much rather do it sooner than later...
