Is it a Tongue Tie?
What is a "tongue tie"? When the tissue connecting our tongue and lips restricts
movement and impairs mobility.
Facts and Tips
• Tongue-tie can cause breast soreness with breastfeeding, difficulty taking a bottle or pacifier, as well as slow weight gain and reflux.
• If you think your infant might have tongue-tie, seek out providers who are knowledgeable in assessing and treatment. You can also schedule an in-home consultation with one of our lactation professionals.
• Sometimes what looks like a tie is only tight oral tissue and can be resolved with therapy.
• Know that revision is not a quick fix. Exercises and training are a must in the first weeks following the procedure.
