I want to get it fixed before her top teeth come in, but I'm not sure how to go about it. It hasn't been a problem, more than likely due to my over-supply, in terms of DD's growth, and I haven't had any pain since she was a month old, but I've noticed that when she babbles, especially Ma and Ba, that the lip curls in, and she's never had a good latch, but at 10 1/2 months she's about 30 inches long and close to 20 pounds. I've also begun to suspect a tongue tie, as the nipple has begun to be lipstick shaped. It didn't used to be, and it usually only happens when she falls asleep eating and slowly slips off.
We live in Ohio, and I know that asking her Ped is futile, but I don't know if we need a referral or not. I plan to call her insurance, but I don't know what to ask, which is the majority of the reason I'm posting this. The rest if the reason is because I don't know where to go, which is why I said we live in Ohio, near Cleveland. Does anyone know of a dr that will check her?
Eta: when is it too late to get her tie clipped?
