Signs of tongue tie




Tongue-tie is a condition in which the lingual frenulum (the thin piece of tissue under the tongue) is too short or tight. 



Tongue-tie can cause difficulties with breastfeeding, as it can make it difficult for the baby to latch on to the breast properly and to suck effectively.



Some signs that a baby may have a tongue-tie include:




  • Difficulty latching on to the breast: The baby may have difficulty opening their mouth wide enough to latch on to the breast or may have difficulty keeping the mouth open while breastfeeding.

  • Difficulty sucking: The baby may have difficulty sucking effectively, resulting in poor milk transfer or long feeding times.

  • Gasping or choking while breastfeeding: The baby may gasp or choke while breastfeeding due to difficulty sucking or swallowing.

  • Clicking or smacking sounds while breastfeeding: The baby may make clicking or smacking sounds while breastfeeding due to difficulty sucking or swallowing.

  • Difficulty staying latched on to the breast: The baby may have difficulty staying latched on to the breast and may frequently slip off the nipple.

  • Poor weight gain: The baby may have difficulty gaining weight or may lose weight if they are unable to get enough milk due to tongue-tie.
