ABOUT TONGUE TIES

As the baby's mother do you have...

  • Sore/damaged nipples

  • Nipples which look misshapen or blanched after feeds

  • Mastitis

  • Low milk supply

  • Exhaustion from frequent/constant feeding

  • Distress from failing to establish breastfeeding

Tongue-tie is a common condition where a thin membrane under the tongue joins the tongue to the floor of the mouth more than it should do.

 

It's very common and easily fixed, so don't worry. Research suggests that approximately 1 in 10 babies are born with tongue tie and many of these suffer with reduced tongue function, making breast or bottle feeding difficult. 

It affects both mother and baby...so if you're feeling low and you have a grumpy baby to boot, don't lose heart, help is at hand.

Does your baby have...

  • Restricted tongue movement

  • Small gape resulting in biting/grinding behaviour

  • Unsettled behaviour during feeds

  • Difficulty staying attached to the breast or bottle

  • Frequent or very long feeds

  • Excessive early weight loss/ poor weight gain/ faltering growth 

  • Clicking noises and/ or dribbling during feeds 

  • Colic, wind, hiccoughs 

  • Reflux (vomiting after feeds) 

If you're nodding along to these lists, your baby may have a tongue tie. This can be resolved in a single, small procedure at one of our clinics. Book an appointment and we'll do a thorough assessment of your situation, providing professional support to get both you and your baby into a great place with feeding.
