Tongue Tie

Hi My little girl (6 weeks) was diagnosed with tongue tie by the health visitor. I’m getting myself worked up that they are going to have to cut her. Has anyone been through this with their LO? How was it and how was your LO afterwards? TIA 😊

If she has difficulty feeding I’d say get it cut. My 1 year old has one and had a high palette as well so he had difficulty with feeding.

Is the baby losing weight? Or seem to be struggling a lot when they eat? My baby never seemed full and would whine and struggle as she ate cause she couldn’t get a good flow or enough.

Yes, but my doctors didn’t catch it (even though I asked multiple times) Until he was a year and a half old. By then they had to put him under general anesthesia to do the clipping. Tunes out it was an abnormal tie. He was unable to do so many things before he had it clipped, he couldn’t stick out his tongue, he couldn’t breastfeed, choked on his food more easily, and he always spat up so much. I’m so happy that they caught it early!

My baby had trouble bf so they diagnosed tongue tie. I was so nervous. They cut it really quick and painless and as soon as I fed her straight after she stopped crying. I don’t think the pain lasted a second. Don’t feel bad I was so worried but it was nothing. I’d say easier and not as bad as taking them for injections x

My son is 5 weeks and is tongue tied but it’s pretty loose. They said no need to cut! By the time he starts walking and crawling he will probably accidentally bite it himself and it’ll go away. Just like how we would bite our cheek or tongue accidentally. I wouldn’t worry too much! Even if you have to cut it’s like getting an ear pierced. No big deal ! You go this and there shouldn’t even be a recovery.

Yes my daughter was about 5-6 weeks and she had tongue tie as well and I had it clipped underneath she cried for a few mins but after that it was fine. Sometimes tongue ties can cause speech issues but it depends where it is at
