So at first we were going to wait and get it clipped, but we decided to do it now while he's still little. We also don't want him to develop a speech problem and then get his tie clipped.
I've talked to the ENT (who is a good friend both personally and professionally of our pedi) over the phone. I've sent him pics of the tongue tie and he said at first glance he can't believe I'm not having any BFing issues. He said that the tie is "screaming to be cut."
So Friday he will most likely cut it.
The doctor gave me the option of being in the procedure room when he cuts it or not. I want to be there because I want to nurse him immediately afterwards. But I'm worried of seeing it.
So for those whose babies had tongue ties clipped please tell me it isn't that bad....
I'm about to have an anxiety attack. Holy crap I'm not normally like this...
What if he can't latch afterwards?
I'm worried that maybe he has been compensating for the tongue tie an maybe wont be able to latch after it is clipped.
I'm just sooo nervous.
We have such a good breast feeding relationship. I just for want to ruin it.
