@Sumayyah the physio or osteopath or massage therapist even should be able to assess TMJ as well.
@Lauren 🤠 we’re working with a Physio/ osteo but maybe I’ll look into the chiro. Thankfully my nipples aren’t blistered, just painful as she latches on and sometimes she nibbles on the nipple 😩
@Sumayyah yes! It's the only thing that has given me relief and healed my nipples
@Tami is that the compound cream? I have that one but I always forget to apply lol
@Lina María thank you! We’re still working on the exercises but definitely tricky with her moving her tongue a lot. We’re working with a Physio as well so we’ll see how it goes!
It's possible that aside from the latch baby has a tight TMJ. My daughters latch has always been a little sloppy/shallow but she didn't have any ties and it wasn't painful. I took her to the chiropractor and her TMJ was a little tight in her jaw that was making it hard for her to open her mouth a little wide. Maybe look into that. Also though, if you have any nipple damage its going to hurt until it heals even if the latch is perfect. My son had a bad latch that was fixed around day 6 of BFing but it hurt until 3 weeks when my nipples healed.
No experience with the tongue tie, but from a mom with a babe with a painful latch, ask your doctor for a prescription for APNO cream. It's the only reason I can breastfeed and keep working on the latch. That nipple cream is worth it's weight in gold!
Hi mama!! My baby had the frenectomy when he was 6vdays, he is now 9 weeks. The latch improved but is still not perfect. Not painful however. Keep on working on her opening up her mouth like she was biting an apple. Big big mouth. Work aiming your nipple to her palais and most important do the exercices. My baby is lacking of tonus in his mouth and tongue, so has to exercise again.
Thanks ladies 😊
