    Default tongue tie

    What happens to an annatended tongue tie? I dont know how to explain it, if your LO has it and is never treated how does it manifest as they grow older... I think I have it, I think baby might have it but he has had a poor latch forever and my nipples are pretty much used to it by now, not completely but I have never heard of it in my country, like theres no treatment for it cause i bet it happens still

    Hi, ML!

    Forgive me, but I can't quite tell whether you're using a medical term I don't know, or have just spelled things a little differently.

    Do you mean an unattended tongue-tie? One that hasn't been treated?

    yeah sorry its always a struggle to type... between the cats and the baby lol, so does it still need to be treated if he has it? I know it depends on how bad it is... so I think the question is could it still be treated?

    I personally think all tongue ties should be clipped, it causes so many issues even if it is "minor." Check out Dr Brian Palmer's website for a bunch of great info and http://kiddsteeth.com/old_site/infantdentalcare2010.pdf My DD had such a minor posterior tie that the ENT refused to clip it, but the oral surgeon felt it was quite pronounced. After clipping it at 4 months, she is now able to nurse almost exclusively I take domperidone to maintain my supply and pump, but she nurses better than she takes a bottle.
