Thanks, danipoppins -- I live in Portland! The MMC LCs were very helpful with diagnosis but could not point me toward anyone in Maine who would do the frenotomy. Who did your son's clip?
Our ped referred us to Dr. Fred Roediger (the son, not the father who is listed on the MELCA site) but he pooh-poohed the idea that Egan was tongue tied after a cursory examination. So we went to Needham, MA yesterday to Boston ENT, where Dr. Rebecca Stone evaluated our son in greater depth and agreed with the tongue tie assessment. She clipped him right there in the office and the pain was minimal for him (less traumatic than his vaccinations, by far). The breastfeeding pain is already significantly better for me, and I'm hoping that the improvement continues as we both get used to the new normal.
So all's well that ends well, but it would have been nice to avoid the 3.5-hour drive home in Boston rush hour traffic. I wish the Maine medical community would get wise to this topic and this procedure!
Now I'm off to research exercises...
