GUIDE TO BREASTFEEDING YOUR TONGUE TIED BABY
Your guide to understanding tongue tie identification and management options for your breastfed baby
Breastfeeding challenges are very common and often mothers who are trying to get answers begin wondering if it's possible a tongue tie is making breastfeeding more difficult.
What often happens is a mom like you learns about tongue tie, asks the pediatrician if this could be worth investigating, and is given one of the following answers:
"She can stick her tongue out, so no."
"I don't see a tie, that's not the issue"
"Tongue Ties are a fad. They don't affect breastfeeding"
These mothers are often left feeling hopeless... but there is hope!
I was that mom.
My son's pediatrician was that pediatrician.
But I didn't take, "Just quit trying so hard to breastfeed and switch to formula" as an answer. Instead I kept pushing and digging and advocating. Come to find out he did have a tongue and lip tie, and release solved our issues.
But it isn't always that straight forward. This Guide for breastfeeding your tongue tied baby will help you know which questions to ask so you can become a confident advocate for your baby.
