The impact of a significant tongue tie on the ability of a baby to be breastfed is very often severe. As a consequence, many mothers who plan to breastfeed their babies are compelled to wean them to the bottle much earlier than expected. Consider getting an oral evaluation on your child tongue. The following practice will help release the child's tongue restriction and help improve its tongue mobility. Follow up with a Lactation Consultant if you are breastfeeding.
