Posterior tongue tie

“Maybe your baby has tongue tie?”
This is currently the most common reason given for all manner of problems associated with breastfeeding this decade
I’m not debating that there are many true tongue ties which certainly need snipping (“frenotomy”)and absolutely research in this article supports this.
But

It has become an all too frequent practise to refer many babies for an expensive and potentially unnecessary procedure .This procedure is not currently supported with good quality evidence .The reports of friends or fellow forum readers that the procedure helped them, does not qualifiy as good quality evidence .

Many medical colleagues are quite concerned about the practise of referral for laser tongue tie revision for babies.

Many clients Ive assessed over the past decade have been able to feed comfortably and successfully with good positioning and attachment.
I can often help mothers solve a number of common complications such as sore nipples , wind , vomiting and “colic” with positioning attachment and education
As the attached  article explains (by the woman who created the assembly tool ) very few actually do require frenectomy with laser or cautery

PLEASE allow a trained lactation consultant to really assess your feeding rather than be influenced by forum posts , blaming many innocuous symptoms on “posterior tongue tie”

Laser tongue tie costs parents around $700, many paediatricians will review and snip a minor frenotomy for much less
