Tongue Tied 15 month old

Hello. So my son seems to be tongue tied, not all the way but he does have a lil tie in the middle of his tongue that prevents him from sticking it out. For the moms that have gotten the ties fixed can you share you experiences please. Did you have to let them put the baby to sleep to do it? Can they do it while they are awake? how long does the procedure last? does it bleed a lot? etc... We are still breastfeeding and have not supplemented. Baby is putting on weight and is walking and growing just fine. Im just worried that the tie may interfer with his speech. Your help is very much appreciated. Thanks!

Here's a bump for you, Jen. I think they will have to put him under, as much to keep him from squirming about as anything else.

My nephew was tongue tied and they put him under. He was out in about an hour but then had to stay until he showed urine output or could sit and drink willingly. He still had to do speech therapy but has since completed the program and has little to no issues.

You need to ask Poodlemum. She took both of her daughter to Dr. Kotlow and has informed me that no they do not have to put toddlers to sleep to clip their tie. I'll try to link you to her page.

Apparently, a doctor who says that the child needs to be put under for tie revision is not very educated and knowledgeable about the subject. You need someone who is knowledgeable about posterior tongue ties.

I emailed my local LLL and got a recomendation. They do not put children under general anesthesia but do offer local anesethics if necessary.

Good to know! What do they do for kids who are resistant, I wonder?
