“What is the solution for tongue-tie of children in the first days of breast feeding?”

When the second child of Tita Emrich, Justin was just born, she felt very hard to give him a breast, “I mostly burst into tears while trying to push the breast into his mouth”. The mother who had 4 children wasn’t stuck in any trouble with previous kids, but with Justin, it was really different. He had a hard disease about short tongue ligament (tongue ligament which is a piece of skin under the tongue has the function to keep the tongue stick to the palate). Specialized doctors said it was ankyloglossia or people called it tongue-tie. Tongue-tie has different levels, according to Janet Grabowski doctor, “tongue-tie will not affect much to the real function of the tongue. If it’s worse, children won’t put their tongue at the right place of breast, so they can’t get enough breast milk. In some rare cases, tongue-tie may cause after-effect later.

With Justin, tongue-tie was recognized early because of the difficulty to be breast-fed. Maureen Fjeld expert, director of The Calgary Breastfeeding Centre analyzed, this symptom can harm to the mother’s nipples. “Because the child can’t reach the nipple which is too far for them, they tend to chew nipples” – Fjeld said. There are many cases mother didn’t recognize tongue-tie till the baby lost weight, and then breast feeding depended on nutrition experts.

A method which is suggested by many experts is surgery to lengthen the tongue ligament, a simple small surgery which is operated by direct desensitizer in the doctor’s office for hard tongue-tie. With the moderate levels of tongue-tie, they don’t endanger to breast feeding process, or the ligament will be lengthened itself when the child grows up, or even the ligament can be broken and cured itself.

Fortunately for Justin, tongue-tie was realized soon when he was just 2 weeks, so he just needed a small surgery to lengthen the tongue ligament a bit, and then breast feeding became faster and smoother with just 10 minutes for each time.
