Heard about tongue ties in babies?
Are you wondering if your baby might have one?
Here are 2 simple checks you can do:
When your baby cries, does the whole of their tongue lift up close to the roof of their mouth?
When they are asleep, if you gently pull their lower lip down, can you see the underside of their tongue?
If the answer to both of these questions is no, your baby might have TOTs (tethered oral tissues) or a ‘tongue tie’.
Dr Sharon Franklin has spent the last 4 years attending numerous seminars and workshops on the latest research into the assessment and management of tongue tie in babies.
Sharon works closely with lactation consultants and paediatric dentists. She can give you an idea of how restricted your bubs’ tongue might be and show you exercises that you can do at home to help with the hands on treatment.
These exercises are also vital as preparation for a release, if that’s what your baby needs.
Sharon can also help you with treatment and exercises post-op. As with any surgery, you get a much better outcome with pre-hab and re-hab 👍
