You are in pain, get evaluated.

Is your baby tongue tied?

How do I know if my baby is tongue tied AND it is affecting our breastfeeding relationship?

 

  • Do you cringe in pain everytime you even think about latching your baby to your breast?
  • Is your baby clicking, smacking and/or coming on and off the breast during feedings?
  • Do you see a "notch" at the tip of your baby's tongue when the stick their tongue out?
  • If you sweep your finger under your baby's tongue - does it get stopped/caught by the frenulum under the tongue?
  • Does your baby have a sucking blister on the upper lip that keeps peeling?
  • Is your nipple pinched and blanched white after a feeding?
  • Do you have a scab/crust line accross your nipple?
  • Is your baby not gaining weight well even though they are feeding at the breast "all the time"?
  • Are you supplementing after every feeding because you think your b aby is still hungry?

 

If you answered Yes to more than 3 of the above, you should be evaluated by one of our specialist because it is possible your baby has a type of tongue tie that might be causing these issues. It is a problem with a safe, office based procedure solution. Come visit one of our specialists today! Do not suffer in pain one more day.

Testimonial

“I knew something wasn't right and my baby's doctor thought it was just I was not making enough milk. Dr. Moore was so helpful, she realized quickly that Jack was tongue tied and fixed it right then. He immediately latched on afterwards - PAIN FREE!” Karen, Mom of a tongue tied infant.
