      Guide to tongue/lip ties- good info to know!!! I was lucky enough to have a lactation consultant at the hospital discover Noah was tongue tied on the second day. Because he was spitting up blood from my bleeding cracked nipples. He was the most amazing nurse ever after the pediatrician clipped it.(he did not cry when she clipped it and just a light spot of blood and it was done)

      Diagnosing tongue/lip tie. It can be helpful to know. Sometimes tongue tie can necessitate clipping the frenulum (tissue connecting the tongue to the bottom palate). However, except in extreme cases, mothers who are willing to endure the pain, as tongue tied babies have to nurse more forcefully and difficult positions, can still breastfeed successfully without obtaining a frenectomy for their baby.
