Don't struggle through it alone!
A lingual frenulum is the name of a small band of tissue that connects the middle of the bottom of the tongue to the bottom of the mouth.
Tongue-Tie: Although a lingual frenulum can be a normal part of your baby's anatomy, sometimes this tissue is too small or too tight and it inhibits the full motion of the tongue and can cause functional problems with breast feeding and/or pain for Mom with breastfeeding.
Frenotomy (Tongue-Tie Release): A frenotomy is a procedure in which the tongue-tie is released either with surgical scissors or a laser. This can improve your baby's ability to move his or her tongue which often improves breast feeding.
