I just came back from the LC, she said because he can stick his tongue out fairly far past his lower gums, it's not causing problems and that they are only clipped if they can't be extended. I just don't know what to do. Maybe it's not the problem? Maybe I should just go to a specialist and ask for an evaluation?
She also discovered though that he has a very strong gag reflex, and that may be why he latches well but then pushes the breast out some instead of keeping a deep latch or pulls off a lot.
We have also been diagnosed with thrush now and are using APNO and gentian violet.
