After a few days of research (and of course posting here and getting great advice), I think my DS has a lip tie. He has been gulping, clicking, swallowing tons of air, etc. Anyway, my DH and I called around this a.m. to find somebody to evaluate him for a lip tie/tongue tie. We called our pediatric dentist who referred us on to an oral surgeon. We called the oral surgeon and set up a consult for tomorrow a.m., which is going to cost us $80. I am not sure how much the actual procedure would cost, but I am sure it will be more than the consult. The cost is really not a big deal to us. However, we called the pediatrician's office in the meantime before we spoke to the oral surgeon and they returned our call after we had set up the consult. They suggested we start with them, just in case we want to "wait out" the tie to get better/easier. The only reason I would even consider that would be to save at least $80, probably more.
My question to you ladies is does "waiting it out" ever work?
