I think it might be a mild form of cleft palate.
Please, someone, tell me I am being paranoid, or something. I want my baby to be perfect.
These are the reasons I think it's something strange....
~roof of her mouth seems strangely high
~there are ridges next to the gums (look like another set of gums)
~when she nurses, she can't seem to ever get the "right latch" for her. She pulls off repeatedly and cries
~She had gained one pound by her 2-week check-up, but doesn't seem to be getting "fat". My first DD had went from 8lbs 7 oz at birth, to !!!12!!!lbs by her first month check-up. I think that proves that I have good milk.
This is making me so sad. I never thought I could have a child with problems of this sort.
I'm thinking I might want to start pumping milk for her. Is there a chance she might get"nipple confused". She is almost 4 weeks old.
She soaks many diapers a day, and poops about once a day, recently.
Has anyone had experience with this, or some links you could sent my way?
