laser surgery update

Well, Cassandra had her posterior tongue tie and upper lip tie lasered this morning at the dentist's office.

She is latching a LOT better since then, but...

I really didnt like it. She was PISSED and hurting. Im dosing her with tylenol for the next 24 hours to try to help.

We have to stretch the lip and tongue at least 4 times a day for the next 2 weeks.

No artificial nipples at all for the next 3 weeks.

My poor baby. the inside of her upper lip and under her tongue are BURNED.

I feel like a horrible mom.

I'm sorry... I honestly felt the same way after having DS#1 circ done. And then when it was healing and the gauze stuck to it and I made him bleed by trying to get it off.....

But getting the tie fixed is best for her. and you.

I'm so sorry! You're not a horrible mom! You're trying to do what's best for her. I hope she feels better soon and the BFing continues to improve!
