POINTS TO LOOK FOR WITH TONGUE TIES IN AN INFANT
1) Pain while nursing
2) Breast not being emptied efficiently or with effort
3) Dimple in the middle of the tongue when baby is sticking it out
4) Doesn't have a good range of motion with tongue
5) Square ended tongue
For the past week before every feeding, I have had to do a sweet under her tongue and under her lip to help promote movement and so that the tissue doesn't grow back together. Elyse obviously doesn't like it, but once she starts feeding she is fine. And if it is decided that this has to happen, it should happen before 6 months as that is when the frenulum start to thicken up more. We just barely caught the cut off. On a plus side, our little beauty has an even wider smile now!
