Tongue tie treatment
Underneath the tongue is a small band of tissue that controls the movement of the tongue.
Signs of problems in babies that may be related to tongue tie are:
Swallowing air whilst breastfeeding
Fussing at the breast
Struggling with food of certain consistency in toddlers or adults
One of the first sensory experiences for the baby are from the connection with the breast, bottle, suckling to receive nourishment.
In the case of tongue tie it can be as simple as stretching exercises to the tongue and teaching techniques for tongue training.
