Solve your child’s tongue tie issue

Wednesday, 21st October, 2020 2:56pm

A tongue tie is an increasingly common problem. Ankyloglossia, or a tongue tie as it’s more commonly known, is when membrane under the tongue is so tight that it restricts the movement of the tongue muscle.

This can cause tiredness in the tongue and an array of symptoms in a baby, including:

* Air swallowing

* Gasping during feed, hiccupping

* Colic, discomfort, windiness

* Clicking sound during feeds

* Leaking milk during feeds

* Possible slow weight gain

 

Breastfeeding moms may experience:

* Nipple damage

* Painful feeds

* Blanched or ‘lipstick’ shape nipple

* Blocked ducts

* Mastitis

Tongue tie release is a minimally invasive procedure with 95 per cent improvement rates. If you or your baby are experiencing any of these symptoms, you can contact Tongue Tie Cork for an assessment or tongue tie release from a fully qualified and experienced tongue tie practitioner.
