“We knew it wasn’t a supply thing.  I was just spraying milk everywhere.”

“I actually think that her reflux was probably related to having a tongue-tie.”

“We saw a speech pathologist because even with her bottles, she would take the bottle and would just spill all over her face.”

“We still have not addressed the lip & tongue-tie.”

“They’re made up of the same DNA, both children, but yet they are all completely different.”

“I wish I would have known that breastfeeding was not easy.”
