For those that think it is painful did you circ your sons? Our doc said it was less painful then that and it really should be done depending on the severity of it.
My son was tongue tied at birth and had a terrible time latching on to nurse. We went to an ENT when he was 3 weeks old and had it clipped. It can cause problems nursing and later with speech. My son was sleeping and they put a thing in his mouth to hold his tongue up and then snipped with scissors. He cried more from being woke up and having his mouth pried open then anything. I immediately put him to breast and he was right back to sleep. It took a week or so to teach him how to latch properly afterward, but it was well worth it for me. He also seemed to stick his tongue out more the first couple days after. He was severe too and at 4 years old I can still see the notch on my son's tongue too.
