My son was tongue tied. I say was because when my MIL took him to get circumsized they clipped under his tongue so he wouldn't be tongue tied anymore. I had no idea there was even such a thing. He never had any trouble eating, one because I have a very fast let down and two because Ithink we both got used to it.

How often is everyone feeding during the day? My son wants to eat every 2 hours in the day time, but at night he will go from9 till 3.

Ok, first of all, PT training a baby? Personally I don't agree with that, but to each their own.

I would choose the breast milk over PT any day. the benefits of breastmilk are well researched.

Secondly, Yes, Gentian violet. You mix it with equal amounts of water, and use a q-tip to apply to your nipples just before nursing every session. Yes, Brooklyn's mouth was a little purple and so was my nipples. Make sure you nurse without a shirt on, or a shirt you don't care about, and same for baby. Use until it goes away. You can get it at most drug stores and don't need a prescription.

That's funny that your daughter tries to breastfeed. I'm surprised Madison hasn't tried that one yet!

how old is your son? My daughters always nursed more during the day and I was ok with that if I was getting more sleep at night. I would say both nursed every 2-3 hours for at least the first 5-6 weeks or so. I was home 8 weeks with Maddy and 10 weeks with Brooklyn and thankfully both slowed a bit before I went back to work. If this is somethingthat is new for your baby it's probably because he is in a growth spurt. These usually happen at 10 days, 3 weeks, 6 weeks, 3 months, 6 months.

My son is 10 weeks old. He has always eaten about every 2 hours. I work from home so it isn't a big deal but it would be nice if he eventually goes 3 hours in the day. During his last growth spurt he was eating almost every hour. He is a big boy so I don't know if that has any correlation.

size can definitely play a role. Just be thankful he doesn't still eat every two hours at night ;)



How long does he nurse for on each side? Do you make sure he nurses long enough on the first side to get the hindmilk? This is what will help keep him full longer.
