My daughter is 9days old today, I breastfeed her for maybe the first 24hours in hospital, I had to stop because she has tongue tie so she found it hard to latch, I felt terrible and still do about having to stop, i really enjoyed it, but it wasn't worth her pain or frustration.
Anyway, I was in the shower last night and my nipples are still leaking, i squeezed my boob, and it seems I have plenty of colostrum/milk.
Do you think it would be a good idea to express? maybe i could give it to her in conjunction with formula?!
The formula is not proving very effective at filling her :'(
Your still early in the game so if you could have her tongue tie clipped then you would probably have a successful bf relationship.. but of course you can pump and give it to her with the formula.. any boobie milk counts!
My LO had tongue tie too! She had lost too much n was referred to a local hosp to get her re-weighed when the MW noticed she had quite a big tongue tie n was told to go upto a main hosp (coz of her weight loss) n get her tongue snipped, it was done the next morning and she latched on very well after that, but coz we was having to top up wiv formula in bottles she got too used to the bottle n then latching started goin all very wrong
i wud def try her back on the breast or express! Im just over 5 weeks PP n i still get milk comin out if i squeeze my nips lol, i had it shoot me in the eye yesterday
