Show of hands: Did your LO have tongue tie?
My DS is nearly 3 months old and we've been working with our LC, a baby chiro and Dr. Kotlow for tongue tie and lip tie. I wish we had dealt with it at 2 weeks when it was discovered but sadly we put it off until 2 months. We've had both the TT and LT lasered and will probably need to get the TT lasered one more time as we've noticed some reattachment even with aggressive stretching. Our LC discovered the TT/LT and when I mentioned it to my ped she just kind of ignored me. My son has a shallow latch even with the revisions but his transfer has improved a lot. My nipples still get lip sticked and now I also get some non-painful blanching. I keep trying as I really love BFing and think it's the best thing for my son.
It saddens me that TT/LT is not something checked for at birth so that moms and babies can start off their breastfeeding relationship on the right foot.
So, I'm curious; have you dealt with TT/LT? How was it discovered? Did your ped acknowledge your concerns? What course of action did you take? How was BFing? For older kids, what kinds of speech or oral issues arose from the TT/LT not being discovered and addressed?
