    • It was reverse for me. My daughter was such a great nurser, but my son was born with ankyloglossia and needed an frenotomy in order to breastfeed. Poor latching, not getting enough milk, and severe nipple pain and damage were just a few things we experienced before his procedure. Now he’s doing really well, nursing much better and gaining weight. But we were guilted for supplementing with formula in the meantime to ensure he was getting enough food from nurses, lactation consultants and the breastfeeding clinic. I was trying my best but no one seemed to understand our predicament.
