    I'm so nervous about getting her tongue cut!! The mw is coming at 8 now..
    She's decided to feed well today!! Had to let her cry a bit for a feed coz I was in the middle of showering the girls, then I bathed her (hates baths so cried alot) then fed her in her dressing gown.. She fed really well!! It's making me question myself!! She's still not getting a mouthful but she was able to feed and be satisfied which she hasn't done at this time of night for two weeks!!! What if this makes her worse??? What of she can't feed after at all coz she's not used to her tongue movements??!!!

    What of I've mistaken this for just a cold she's not feeling 100%??? Or a growth spurt?? I've been eating like a horse recently to get my milk stronger maybe it's finally worked and that was the problem???

    I agree hun, talk to the mw. Could you put off having it done for a short time and see if feeding gets better?

    She is doing it at home??? With Caitlin they said if she needed it done, it would be done under a general anaesthetic, as it is too painful for it to be cut without. They used to snip it with scissors when they were born, now they say that is a bit barbaric when baby is older and do it under a ga.

    When they get past 6months it's more painful and healing time is longer, had it done at home yeah.. My sister had it done as an adult and it took ten days before she could eat and had to have physio for her tongue..

    So glad it went well. You should be proud of yourself for getting it sorted so quickly. At least she will recover quickly as shes so young. Hopefully it well help her feed better x
