Tongue Tie & Lip Tie Breastfeeding Success Stories

Breastfeeding Tongue Tie & Lip Tie / Success Stories

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐  Caroline J

The hospital lactation consultant immediately informed me my newborn had a tongue tie that needed to be fixed, said I would HAVE to use a shield...

I just delivered my son at 37 weeks and he ended up having to be rushed straight to the NICU. He wasn’t able to feed for the first 24 hours and by the time he could, it wasn’t perfect.

However, this program gave me the confidence, knowledge and patience to work with him to get it right.

Out of pure curiosity, I did end up meeting with the hospital lactation consultant who, to my horror, IMMEDIATELY informed me my son had a tongue tie that needed to be fixed, said I would HAVE to use a shield with him and then tried to have me grab the back of his head and shove him on me. No! I politely thanked her and asked her to give me some time. She came back today in disbelief that he has fed repeatedly with no shield, no tongue tie issues and is getting fully satisfied each time. Rest and digest for the win!
Thank you Thompson Method!

Struggling with breastfeeding? We battled a cesarean birth, a huge over supply, and a severe lip tie without revision.

'We made it to 6 months!! I’m completely thrilled. My fourth and last baby and I’ve attempted nursing with all of them. It wasn’t until I found the Thompson Method that I had the knowledge, support, and most of all confidence to work through all the challenges that came up.

If your struggling reach out! We battled a cesarean birth, a huge over supply, and a sever lip tie without revision. I cannot thank this team enough for getting us this far and here’s to making it to whenever Oscar feels ready to wean 🥰'

Severe tongue and lip ties released and finally breastfeeding

For the record I found the Thompson Method AFTER I had my daughters ties released.
So this happened today...😭😭 my daughter (nearly 7 weeks old) who had severe tongue and lip ties released 3 weeks ago has finally breastfed after not being breastfed since about 1 1/2 weeks old! I am so happy I could cry. I’m glad I never gave up. I just hope that one day soon only my breastmilk will satisfy her and be enough and we can ditch formula and bottles all together!"

Lactation consultants pushed that my newborn had tongue ties and lip ties 

I post on here a lot for advice but this one is just a post to say thank you. 1 month old EBF and I’m not sure I could have done the breastfeeding journey without this program. So different than my son who started in the nicu. They pushed bottles and did not support the breastfeeding journey.

We hired lactation consultants for him who only made things more stressful... They pushed that he had tongue and lip ties (which my doctor said maybe he had a little but was against the surgery thankfully).

I fought for 6 months with him with nipple covers, pumping, donated breast milk, and formula. It was aweful. I’m so glad I decided to make the purchase of Dr Robyn's program literally in the hospital while waiting for my c-section with my daughter. I have already recommended the program and will continue to do so. I’m sure I’ll post a million more questions but for now saying thank you ❤️

I was concerned that my newborn had a tongue/lip tie but we made it to 6 months breastfeeding

Girls I did it!!! We made it to 6 months and I am SO PROUD of both myself and my baby girl 🥰

Breastfeeding by far has been the absolute most difficult thing I have ever done - horrible latch issues, scabbed nipples, P-A-I-N, nursing while both me and baby had COVID and felt miserable (and trust, we were SO CAREFUL, but my wife has an essential job 😔), but I never considered stopping, not ever once.

I was concerned about lip/tongue ties, but after getting FOUR DIFFERENT diagnoses by 4 different experts, I hesitated to persue any procedures. My pediatrician said that her latch may improve with age as her mouth grows and they were right!

I truly never thought I would actually look forward to nursing but it honestly brings me so my much happiness to be able to nurture her in this way. I must also give a HUGE shout out to not only the Thompson Method, but also my wife for helping me fine-tune, for supporting my “need” to push on when I was struggling so hard, for wiping my tears when I was in so much pain, for being my champion and bragging to her friends that I am a rockstar for soldiering on and not giving up because it’s the best thing for our daughter. Trust me... you got this mamas, we are a special kind of super heroine 😘

Thankfully I had a consult with Robyn and she confirmed what my gut was telling me, leave the ties alone!

*Tongue Ties* I just wanted to share a couple of pictures of my 7mo boobie babe. We were informed when she was 5 days old that she had a tongue and lip tie and in order to feed sufficiently they would need to be released.

I kept getting pressured from our chiro to book the procedure (which I kept ignoring). Thankfully I had a consult with Robyn and she confirmed what my gut was telling me, leave the ties alone!

I mean, look at that tongue! I think we would have a little Gene Simmons on our hands if we had cut it.

Rough start due to my newborn having a tongue tie and high pallet.

Loving the bond I have with my little Prince thanks to this method, 6weeks strong and still going 😍😊 we had a rough start due to him having a tongue tie and high pallet, which myself and his dad made the decision to have his tie procedure done which has improved his feeding alot, we have had to do some top ups with formula for a little while but I'm now proud to say we are now 100% on mamas milk and I personally feel like a super hero for getting him just on my milk 💪.

Enjoying being more relaxed and trying different feeding positions to keep him going and myself going. Honestly this program and the support of the admin team has been amazing and using the app its self to search for bits and bobs you are unsure on is amazing 🥳. This programme gave me the ability to crack on with breastfeeding and reach out and talk to other mama's too in general, such a great support network ☺️.

Every mama is completely different when it comes to breastfeeding some can crack it straight away and some take longer, honestly ladies hand on my heart I believe if I didn't have this amazing support from everyone in the group and the knowledge of Dr Robyn Thompson method I would of given up a long ago. Credit to my husband for this amazing photo of us relaxing feeding and bonding together.

Thank you to this amazing groups and to Dr Robyn Thompson for her amazing method ❤️

We battled c section sleepy baby, tongue ties, nipple trauma, low weight gain issues, low supply, food allergies and were constantly pushed towards formula...

We're so excited to have made it to 1 year of breastfeeding!! 🎉🎉 I'll admit, it's been super hard work.. we battled c- section sleepy baby, tongue ties, nipple trauma, low weight gain issues, low supply, food allergies, were constantly pushed towards formula (which I refused) and he's gone from (in the early stages) being on the 4th percentile for weight to nicely sitting on the 64th percentile for weight at 1 year! Thank you to Dr Robyn and the team for their support when I've reached out, and giving me the strength and backing to persevere with my breastfeeding goal. And I want to encourage other mumma's out there who are struggling to believe that they can do it.. Yes it's super hard.. sometimes it feels like hurdle after hurdle, yes there were many tears and exhausted nights, yes I doubted myself at times and felt like giving up but am so glad that I persevered and followed my instincts! It's been a journey, but well worth it and so in love with my little man 💙

I had nipple trauma before I left the hospital

Yesterday my first born baby turned ONE!!

When I was pregnant I had my heart set on breastfeeding. I watched so many videos, read loads of articles and went to all the local breastfeeding classes

.....I honestly thought I was prepared.....

I found the Thompson Method just before I gave birth and it really resonated with me

I didn’t purchase the program in pregnancy because I was naive and left it to chance. I thought breastfeeding would come naturally WRONG!!

For our first breastfeed my sons head and my boob was handled forcefully and I was in pain before I was discharged 24 hours later. I remember thinking “wow that Dr Robyn was so right!

My son was diagnosed with a “tongue tie” and lactation consultants told me I needed to be more rough with my baby and that my ripples would tough up

I purchased the program a few weeks later because I was in so much pain.

Breastfeeding became unbearable and I was so overwhelmed.

I didn’t get my sons tongue clipped, I didn’t need to. I followed Dr Robyn’s education on attachment and I was pain free within a few days!!!!!

Literally enjoying breastfeeding after a few gentle changes
I cannot recommend Dr Robyn’s program enough. I wish I would’ve invested before my son was born so I could’ve known everything I know now. Don’t hesitate. You will not regret it!

Thank you to everyone who helped along the way but especially to Dr Robyn Thompson for the amazing work she has done with women across the world

Here’s a few pics of our breastfeeding journey and there’s no end in sight

I suffered with cracked/bleeding nipples, engorgement, breast refusal, low milk supply, low weight gain, tongue tie revision, using SNS system, topping up with bottles, nipple shields, expressing every two hours, you name it ...

Well it doesn’t seem possible that it has been a whole year gone by where I sat and wrote about how thankful and grateful I was to Dr Robyn for myself and my little chunky monkey to reach one year breastfeeding. Well here we are again, we just hit 2 years of breastfeeding and as well as saying thank you to Dr Robyn I would also like to say a huge thank you to all the amazing and beautiful ladies of the breastfeeding club.

There have been times in the last year where the sleep deprivation kicked in that comes along with looking after 6 children, working, studying the list goes on that I nearly came close to stopping.

However I read all your amazing posts which have been and continue to be inspiring, this along with my chunky monkey asking for his “minkies” kept me going, so thank you 🙏🏻 The road at the beginning wasn’t just rough, it had been dug up to be resurfaced. I suffered with cracked/bleeding nipples, engorgement, breast refusal, low milk supply, low weight gain, tongue tie revision(where they temporarily damaged one side of his tongue) using SNS system, topping up with bottles, nipple shields, expressing every two hours, you name it, I seemed to have encountered it. I called upon the services of 3 different lactation consultants, private midwife, and anyone else who I thought could help but unfortunately it came along with so much conflicting advice and exacerbated my challenges even further to the point I was looking at a tin of formula with tears rolling down my cheeks and a heavy heart, I was questioning my every decision and instinct.

This was because I had successfully breastfed my previous five and couldn’t understand why I was such a failure this time round 😔 Fast forward to my rescue with Dr Robyn, she took me under her wing, reassured me that I wasn’t a failure and one by one worked through my challenges. Within 4 weeks my son was exclusively breastfeeding pain free, no top ups, no nipple shields and was thriving.

Now, let me say, the 4 weeks weren’t smooth sailing there were some days where I felt like I took one step forward and ten back and it felt like I was riding a roller coaster but I can honestly say it was worth the ride.... I have now had the honour of being an admin here in the club and supporting women through their own breastfeeding rescues in the rescue club for nearly the past two years and it has truly been a privilege supporting all you amazing ladies, you ladies rock 🤙🏻🥰 So once again... THANK YOU Dr Robyn, the full team and all you incredible ladies 🥰 A picture of my chunky monkey with all his brothers and sisters... 🥰🥰

I love the bond I get with my daughter through breastfeeding

I’m only 5 weeks into my second breastfeeding journey. My first time was the forceful method and my son never truly latched until 8 weeks. We struggled HARD the first few months. Pain. No latching. Convinced of tongue ties and lip ties and every other “excuse” for why it was hard.We ultimately had success and I nursed until I weened at a year.

This time around I was determined to not have a traumatic experience. I had anxiety leading up to it and contemplated just going straight to formula. I found your method. I saw all the negatives in my first journey and figured “she understands. She knows where these go wrong and can help me this time”. So I tried. I have such confidence in nursing my daughter.

Thank you! I have breastfed in public at only a couple weeks old (we had baseball games) and I was so proud and confident. She knew what to do and so did it. I can’t believe how awesome this has gone and I couldn’t have done it with this program. I love the bond I get with my daughter through breastfeeding and glad I didn’t shy away because my last experience was so traumatic.

I am so thankful I came across this group and The Thompson Method

2.5 years ago You would have seen the same thing in my freezer, but it wasn't mine.. From 2 weeks old with my newborn breastfeeding was a complete struggle, he was tongue tied, had a receding jaw, fell asleep within 5 minutes of nursing and I would cringe at the next feeding. I didn't like breastfeeding because of the experience, and I had NO help!

I pumped, topped up with formula and got milk donations from a local girl who I barely knew and I felt defeated and ashamed that I couldn't give my baby what he needed. Fast forward 2 years, I came across the Thompson Method and told myself I'm going to pull through this time with the proper education and help to get myself through that first initial month! And here we are, 2 months old with my second that picture is MY milk and I'm exclusively breastfeeding, formula once and only use my freezer stash when needed. I'm so thankful I came across this group and the Thompson Method. I'm not stressed, and worried my baby isn't getting enough. She's now 2 months old and weighs almost 13 pounds and full of rolls and I'm loving every bit of it! Again, SO thankful!🙌💗

If you’re pregnant and had a previous child with ties, this program will be incredibly useful for you!

One of the main reasons I bought the program was because my first had a lot of nursing issues (all from lack of support, knowledge, differing provider opinions, forceful techniques, etc), but we revised his tongue and lip tie becauuse everyone said that’s what the issue was (it wasn’t) and with my new baby I did not want to go that route unless absolutely necessary. Dr Robyn had a video that said she believes that with her method, a baby can use their unique mouth to nurse without revisions, and so I signed up! My new guy has an even more prominent tie of his lip and tongue (and can’t use a paci, has a high palette, similar to my first) and with Dr Robyn’s info, this baby is FAR more efficient and knows how to latch himself and use his hands to help... all at 2 weeks! It’s also been pain free since first latch, and with two providers mentioning his tie already, I’m so glad I can confidently say that it is not a concern. If you’re pregnant and had a previous child with ties, this program will be incredibly useful for you!

We have made it through everything with support and confidence because of Dr. Robyn and the amazing admins here. I LOVE breastfeeding my baby, pain free and happy.

I just wanted to share this win with this amazing group. Today, my second beautiful girl is exactly the same age as my first when she abruptly stopped breastfeeding,. Cold turkey. She was teething, had a cold and at the pressure of well meaning family and friends I had stated her on a bottle and she never went back no matter what I tried. Breastfeeding had ALWAYS been painful with my first so I was relieved and devastated all at once, but so so frustrated with no support. Now with this baby and this amazing program, it’s night and day. We’ve been through thrush, mastitis, tongue tie, shield use, you name it, but we have made it through everything with support and confidence because of Dr. Robyn and the amazing admins here. I LOVE breastfeeding my baby, pain free and happy. We are now nearly 6 months in and going strong with no end in sight. Thank you Dr. Robyn Thompson and the whole team from the bottom of our hearts, I only wish I had found you sooner ❤️

We are loving the breastfeeding life and so grateful to have found Dr Thompson.

We are finally successfully breastfeeding every meal 🙌🏼🎉💗 baby is 5 weeks old and before finding this course I was in true breastfeeding hell. We had all the wrong advice, a tongue tie, bottle feeding and a pacifier advised/ given by the hospital staff on day 1… it all resulted in bleeding, cracked, and bruised nipples by day 3. The whole left boob was a giant clogged duct. I started pumping to let the nipples heal but later learned I had the wrong pump size and style… so pumping and bottle feeding resulted in burned and bruised nipples. I couldn’t even dry off with a towel after showing without being in terrible pain when the towel lightly brushed them. After getting this course 2 weeks ago and applying the methods, my baby’s latch is so much better and he doesn’t bite anymore. We are loving the breastfeeding life and so grateful to have found Dr Thompson. I took this pic at an angle, it’s my favorite so far, like peek a boobie!🤣😍💗
