I recently read this article on the Huffington Post, which brought me to tears. I do not know why the author's breastfeeding experience was so difficult, and it sounds like she doesn't either. Although, if I had to guess, it would have something to do with the tongue tie that she refers to some lactation consultants thinking her son might have had. I couldn't help but comment in the event that my experience helps anyone at all. I know that when you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail. I don't want to sound like a one-issue person, but my experience with other women tells me how common and misunderstood ties are.
At any rate, read on. With sympathy and compassion, please.
The fact is that I don't know what I'll do if future kid #2 turns out to be this difficult to breastfeed.
