My almost one year old had a lip tie clipped at around nine months. I never had her checked for posterior tongue tie. I don't know if she has one but every time she is cutting new teeth her latch gets really shallow and starts causing me pain. She's beginning to cut her canines and the latch is painful again. I'm not sure if it's worth seeking out help with a posterior tongue tie. We'll (hopefully) be winding down our nursing sessions in the next few months and I feel like if we've made it this far we can push through. But I don't know if a PTT would affect speech or eating habits?
She does still nurse every two hours around the clock. I had hoped after we clipped the lip tie that she would be able to be satisfied for longer periods but she's still nursing like a newbie.
Anyway, experience here? Should I try to find someone to check her for PTT or am I just reaching for an explanation?
