Possible tongue tie

Question:

First time mom, need help. My daughter is 2 weeks old today. I want to breastfeed really bad but she is not latching on. The doctor told me that she is tongue tide. What to do?

Answer:

Dominique,

I would highly recommend that you have a consultation with a lactation consultant. They will be able to assess you and your baby and give specific recommendations on your situation. They will also be able to assess if your daughter has tongue tie and help you find a pediatric dentist or ear, nose and throat doctor who would be able to clip it. These services are generally covered by most insurance plans now, so be sure to check with your provider.

Best of luck,

Molly Petersen, CLC
