Well there are doctors around here who divide tongue ties, so they must believe it does! And from first hand experience, my DS went from struggling to suck properly even on a bottle, never getting enough milk out of me and having terrible wind after feeds (and explosive poos), to being a happy, content baby who can drink a bottle in 2 mins if we let him (which we don't lol!), feed for up to an hour on both breasts then pull off still awake but content, and gaining weight rather than struggling to even maintain it!
Thanks for the replies, I don't feel so stupid now! Don't know if it is tt but aamia that sounds truly familiar... Mawbroon I certainly learnt fast that he wasn't the right person to ask! MigGril and narmada I will look into the lactation consultant, there seem to be a couple of names that pop up around here. Zoobmeister you made me laugh, thank you, and for the interesting link.
