Yes, definitely. And they do tend to be hereditary.

I don't think you have one. The only way to know for sure, though, is to have a dentist look at it and determine if it is one or not and he can clip it if it is causing too many problems. My DD1 has/had an upper lip tie (same concept as tongue tie, just upper lip) and she would not breastfeed.

My youngest has an upper lip tie for sure and ibam pretty confident he has a posterior tongue tie as well because he loses latch and clicks while nursing

From what I have been told, a dentist can clip it and things should get better. Unfortunately, I knew nothing about lip or tongue ties when I had my DD1 so i never had hers clipped or anything. But if it is definitely interfering with eating habits, I would get it checked out and look into options to get it fixed.

I wish I had known about lip ties when my DD1 was born. I would have been able to breastfeed. I am so mad I wasn't able to. I gave up too quickly.

I'm getting my own tie (looks very similar to yours) fixed next monthish.  Whenever this baby decides to make an appearance lol.  We're taking her up to Dr Ghaheri in Portland, I'm very excited to see the benefits!

He has a tongue tie. You can clearly see it. Not all dentists are smart and know this
