yep-that's a lip tie. DS has one but we aren't even thinking about getting it clipped until later and only if it causes teeth and speech problems

Thanks, I was thinking he might have one. He breastfeeds fine if I'm sitting up but has trouble latching if I try laying down and side nursing him.

It is but not bad. I would avoid surgery if baby can nurse. It is worth sitting up for a while if you have to. Sometimes it goes away as the mouth grows.

Try taking your baby to a lactation consultant or doctor if you are worried?

I'm not worried, just curious.

Yeah, but not a bad one. DD has a pretty bad one, but she's still able to nurse.
