A snip of the tongue


Ever since we went through the process of getting Andrew’s tongue tie assessed and snipped when he was nearly 10 weeks old, I have been very keen to share our story and spread the word about tongue tie in babies. In my experience, there is not much information about it from prominent sources such as antenatal info packs and classes, midwives and health visitors. I found I had to ask other mums I knew at our local breastfeeding support group, who had also had their baby’s tongue tie checked out, and do my own research online, to find out enough about it to make any decisions. So when I was given the chance to write a feature blog post for Wriggly Rascals on tongue-tie in newborns, I jumped at it…. and you can read it here.

If you’ve had experience of a newborn with tongue tie, please take a few minutes if you can to help out another mum trying to decide what to do about her baby’s tongue tie – here’s a Wriggly Rascals’ survey.
