Problems in Breastfeeding
1. Tongue Tie/Ankyloglossia
This condition is present at birth in the newborn. There is a tight band below the tongue of the baby. This prevents the movement of the tongue and thereby can cause issues in breastfeeding. Tongue tie can be treated with or without surgical treatment depending upon the severity.
2. Breast Milk Allergies
Your baby may be allergic to dairy milk you are consuming. That means s/he may just be lactose intolerant. Certain measures need to be taken to find out the reason behind these allergies. Dairy products and some other known allergens are to be avoided in nursing mother’s diet.
