    Default Posterior Tongue-Tie

    Has anyone had experience with this less common form of tongue-tie? We had our DS's frenulum clipped yesterday and I am just looking for others who have dealt with this issue.

    I don't have personal experience, but my SIL successfully nursed 3 tongue-tied children (don't know what kind but anyone can tell they are). It was really hard for her at first for each child. She had more problems with sore nipples and her babies biting down on the nipple than I had. None of her children were ever clipped.

    Wish I could be more help more

    My lo had posterior tongue-tie and an upper lip tie. His was clipped 5 weeks ago, he's 6 1/2 months now. It took me a long time to find a dr. who would diagnose and clip it.

    How old is your lo? Has nursing improved? It may take some time before he realizes he has more mobility of his tongue. It did for my ds...about a week until he really began sticking his tongue out.

    If you have any specific questions feel free to pm me.
