    Default Heard of speech delay in baby who had frenulum clipped?

    My friend's LO had his frenulum clipped at a month of age. He's now 15 months, babbles alot but doesn't say many or any words. Could the clipping have hurt his speech?

    My BIL had his clipped as a baby and still speaks with a lisp. MIL thinks the Dr. either botched the clipping or that possibly he didn't even need it(I think they clipped his before sending him home from the hospital). It might be possible.

    My daughter had hers cut at 3 months, and also didn't speak until she was ready. Unfor when she was ready, she was really ready LOL. Went from not saying much, to full sentences.

    My mom is a speech pathologist and although I have never heard her talk about this specifically, she has said that it is best for babes to go and get tested if you think that there is a problem. If there is a problem it is easiest to fix early on. (She usually deals with swallowing, sucking, latch, eating problems with babes- not so much speech problems (she works at a hospital) so that may be why I havent heard her talk about speech issues from being clipped. )

    She can get her lo tested usually through the local school district if they have a best beginnings program or something of a similar nature. The intervention is also totally free as well as the testing usually.

    My DS is 21 months old, hasn't had his tongue clipped and still only babbles saying maybe 3 words, I think you shouldn't be worried yet, children develop at different stages and I would wait and see what happens at 2years.

    I agree. My dd is almost 16 months and says mama and papa...and that's it. Every child is different and she shouldn't worry yet.
