I posted earlier this week about my tongue tied ds2. Have been trying to get him sorted but have had no contact from Milk Matters and the bill for lip/ptt division privatley is £760 and we are struggling...

I nearly had a panic attack in the clinic, I have OCD about this issue (for real, not a figure of speech) and my heart just sank when I saw the reading. I have been expressing four times a day and giving him an extra 4oz for three weeks.. that's all I can get out.

The advice I've been given is either:
1) go to GP to get high cal formula on prescription and start to top up this way
2) wean him now with high carb things like potatoes, avocadoes and bananas

What do you think I should do? I am totally clueless. Sitting here with him sleeping on my lap with tears streaming down my face trying to sit on my hands to stop me googling horror stories of what might be wrong with him if it's not the tongue tie. Trying to tell myself to get a grip. Just feel like the shittest mother in the entire universe for not realising how far he had dropped and also how crap I am for being so OTT about it when there are others out there whose children have really serious stuff wrong with them... Christ how would I ever cope?

I'm so glad you have finally got to the bottom of what was wrong. What a nightmare you've been through. Well done for persisting and I hope all the stress will be just a memory very soon.
