For many reasons, my wife had to work really hard to breastfeed. She had a couple of obstacles to get past which sometimes prevented her from enjoying the breastfeeding journey. With both of our children she struggled with positioning which seemed to affect the latch creating a toe curling, tear-inducing pain. Once she’d manage to get the baby on and feeding more comfortably I remember her then complaining about back pain. She never moans or anything my Missus! I only really understood her plight when we started introducing a bottle and I was able to offer my feeding support.
When I was born I had a severe tongue tie. Due to having so many other ailments as a child I’m not really sure at what age I was when I got the proverbial snip. I’m told I was older than most.
