I wanted to take the time to thank you for what you did for my son Lucas and I. The first full month after Lucas was born was one of the most challenging times of my life. Not only was there the process of adjusting to having a new baby but breastfeeding Lucas was turning out to be a complete nightmare. Given that breastfeeding him was very important to me, I worked extremely hard at trying to find a solution to no avail. The pediatrician and lactation consultant both highlighted that he had a good latch but that perhaps I was not able to produce enough milk. I was put on a nursing the pump regime for at least eight times per 24 hour period. The thought was that when he got bigger and stronger he would be able to empty my breasts. It was an exhausting and grueling process and by the time a month came around my son was still not able to empty my breasts. I was ready to give up entirely on every breastfeeding Lucas, because the regime of nursing, pumping and bottle feeding was not only exhausting, but was also interfering with our bonding. I gave myself until he was five weeks to find a solution, and then decided that if nothing had changed I would simply give him formula. One day before I was ready to give up, in my desperation at 2 in the morning, I found a blog that mentioned that it was important to check your baby for lip ties and tounge ties. Aha! I thought, maybe this is what he has. The mom in the blog discussed many of the same problems with her son, that I was facing with Lucas: inability to empty the breast, apparently a “good” latch, poor weight gain and low milk supply. The next morning I called my pediatrician for a referral and she sent me to you.

I have to be honest, when I met you I was a little bit skeptical about how you promised that things would immediately get better. I was so tired and heartbroken about the entire breastfeeding process, that part of me didn’t want to believe that it would be “that easy” to fix the problem. However, I was wrong! The second after you snipped his mouth and he was put on my breast I could tell things had changed. I could feel the strength of his suction had changed. Still being skeptical, I came home that night and weighed him pre and post feeding and long and behold he had nursed 2 ounces from each of my breasts! That had never ever happened before, the most he would get from my breasts was 0.5 ounces. I could not believe it! I can’t explain to you how much our lives changed after that! No more pumping, no more bottles, just nursing and cuddling and bonding. I can’t ever thank you enough for that. I truly wish I could have met you sooner to save me so many tears. I wish someone would have told me earlier that this should be checked! Please feel free to share my experience with anyone who may need help. I wish more moms would be aware of this so that they would have their children checked before they give up on breastfeeding or before they spend so many hours trying figure what’s wrong.
