When R was two, we lost a baby, and trusted that the Lord didn't have more kids in His plan for us. After a few years of "should we" should we not", A was created! And of course, we found out just as we were moving out to Washington state. Pregnant, new town, new church... it was a HARD time.
After having some
After a lot of online research, I went back to the lactation consultant - who was still mystified as to why he wasn't eating enough - and asked about a lip tie. She said that could be a strong possibility, so off we went to get a referral. Shock of shock - he had a lip tie! But not the more common, lower lip. It was his upper lip that was tied.
Once that bad boy was cut, he was able to eat much more at a sitting. Here I sit typing, and we are now 13 months in!! I am so grateful for pushing to find out the issues instead of settling for formula solutions. For a girl who used to judge breastfeeding past 6 months, I think I'm doing pretty darn good! :)
Because of these experiences, I have found a great passion in researching and writing about the breastfeeding life - its problems, its blessings, and everything in between - to help others as they walk their own breastfeeding journey.
