    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    Tongue tie causes problems for some babies and infant feeding.

    With a lack of provision in our area for NHS support (6 weeks wait or longer because we could not sustain breastfeeding and now bottle feed), the only way to get Ollie an assessment is to go private. Currently that isn't possible for Ollie's family to finance.

    Ollie cannot maintain a latch on bottles, we have tried various different ones-even the famous "closer to nature" and "colic" bottles. Wind, reflux, excessive suck, hiccups, hunger are just a few of our problems.

    We would love to travel to Huddersfield to Milk Matters for their help and support for Ollie to be more comfortable with his feeds. If you could support us we would be forever grateful and ensure we support any future crowdfunders.
