I have a very close friend who had two children who were tongue tied. They both had the surgery with very quick recovery times. Her son was almost three years old before they knew it (even the pediatrician missed it) and he wasn't talking. He was trying to but he couldn't make out any words. Within a month of his surgery he began pronouncing words and he is now four and talking great. She immediately had her daughter checked and she had to have surgery too. They both did great. Good luck!!View Thread
It's been a stressful weekend to say the least. My son is 3 1/2 months old and he has decided gradually over a weeks time to stop taking his bottle. He started giving us a struggle with it about a week ago. I call the pedi and they say it's because of his constipation, and he was constipated pretty bad, so they give him mirilax. That fixes that and then Saturday he decided to just lose it, scream, kick and cry any time I tried to feed him. I call the after hours number for the pedi and she asks if it's his ears, I don't think so because he takes his paci fine. It's not thrush because his mouths clear. I told her I throw my hands up I just don't know. She said to give him a few days and see if it stops, but I don't think I need to wait. Any common experiences or suggestions??
Before you hate on me for not breastfeeding I want everyone to know that I have Crohn's disease that I take meds for that prohibit me from doing so. And amongst all of this I am having a flare up and I may be in the early stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Trust me I would love to breastfeed and potentially avoid all of this.View Thread
It was his ears!!! Whew something we know what the problem is and we can fix it!! I was afraid it was his GERD or stomach. A few antibiotics and pain drops and we are on our way to healthy!!View Thread
