In some babies, the little membrane called the frenulum, which joins the middle of the tongue to the floor of the mouth, is too tight and ‘ties’ the tongue so that the baby has difficulty moving his tongue effectively. This means that the baby will be unable to bring his tongue forward far enough to latch onto the breast and draw the nipple far enough back into his mouth to feed well.

Your baby is irritable, grizzly, hates lying on his back, spits up or vomits often, has hiccups constantly and he is a nightmare to feed: he starts to feed voraciously, then he wriggles, squirms and ‘throws’ himself off the breast or when he isn’t doing this, he wants to be permanently attached to your breast.

As you carried your baby in your belly, you dreamed of an instant connection between you – just like the soft focused television ads.

“When I’m breastfeeding, I get a weird tightness and sore tingly feeling like really strong pins and needles in my boobs – tell me they aren’t going to drop off.” Oh dear, I realized that although my daughter had been around while I breastfed her younger siblings and had been immersed in breastfeeding ‘talk’ since she was a small child (I am a lactation consultant), I had completely forgotten to mention the ‘letdown reflex’ to her. Or, maybe she hadn’t really absorbed this bit of information because it didn’t apply at the time.

It seems as though there is almost a campaign of scare-mongering against breastfeeding. Recently, there has been a barrage of reports on social media of breastfed babies being ‘starved’.
