“She is very healthy and even though she hasn’t gained as much weight as we’d like to see, we know what the problem is and it’s getting fixed, so there’s no need to do anything other than what you’re already doing, no need to supplement.” -Pediatrician to mother whose 4-month-old was having a posterior tongue-tie clipped the following day

  1. Nobody noticed my daughter’s tongue-tie when she was first born. It was very difficult to see, apparently, and I never did see it. Her latch looked fine, but didn’t feel quite right. When she was just under 3 months, it got really painful. I happened to see my midwife, and asked if she’d be able to tell. She felt around and said yes, it’s a tongue tie. I tried stretching it manually, but that didn’t help at all, so we scheduled to have it clipped when she was 4 months. At the pediatrician the day before, she weighed in at only 7 ounces more than a month before, but the pediatrician was very supportive and said the above. She nursed right after it was clipped, and her latch was no longer painful! I will be having future children checked within days of birth.

  2. Sorry; forgot to pink!
