    Default Tongue Tie snip and antibiotics question

    My 9 day old had his tongue tie clipped and the ENT recommended a 10 day antibiotic as a preventative measure. I'm reluctant to give the medicine for such a low risk procedure. Are antibiotics standard or is it overkill?

    We had both tongue and lip ties revised and no antibiotics were given, but it was done with a laser, so I'm not sure if there is a difference there. I haven't heard of giving antibiotics for this procedure, but I'm fairly new to all this (FTM), so I'm not very familiar with it.

    For the life of me, I can't imagine why that was recommended. That is absurd.
