Anyone have any experience with upper lip and tongue tie?

My son is 13 weeks old, feeding has been agony since the start. He just got diagnosed with a type 4 tongue tie and upper lip tie, so we got both released. It was a little better for a few days but is still really sore. Did anyon get this done and feed successfully afterwards and if so how long did it take to work out?

Hi, my son tongue tied as well when born. We did not get diagnosed till weeks later. Have you seen a lactation consultant? She will teach you and baby how latch on correctly. for us, it improved within 2 days but we banned bottles from home completely and no matter what did not give in. start nursing while baby is calm and not very hungry. If you wait too long it will be difficult. It will take lots of price and patience. Believe me it's doable thought. My little guy is six months now.Good luck!
