I have a lovely 5do boy. Who has a severe tongue tie and jaundice and so we are having some problems. He was 9lb10 at birth so big too.
At the moment I dread him waking he doesn't feed long because the jaundice means he sleeps permanently and only feeds 5 mins before falling alseep. This doesn't seem to be a prob for him, as of this morning he'd only lost 2% weight ( like last time I appear to have gallons of milk).
But it is soooo painful I am bleeding, bad cracks, I cry every feed. He just can't latch. Tt being snipped next Friday so I am persevering till then. But it's so awful.
I just wanted a moan but I would like to check that the blood in the milk won't do him any harm?
Great - you have options! Agree you have been through a lot. It reminds me how tough those first few weeks of BFing are. I wish more midwives snipped TT, it would make things so much easier. You have done so well, mastitis is truly awful and inevitable for lots of women it seems.
