Tongue Tie / Frenillo

image

It’s been almost a month since we had her tongue tie snipped, and we’re still not free of feeding issues. Her latch seems to have improved but she has developed some bad habits in the 10 weeks or feeding with tongue tie, so it’s never going to be perfect 😦
The procedure itself was quick, and she cried more from being restrained than from the actual snip (or so I want to believe). There was very little blood and most of it came out later when she spat out some pink milk!
I recommend that everyone has their baby checked by a tongue tie practitioner; someone checked Chloe at the hospital before discharge and said there wasn’t one – and she didn’t even touch under the tongue! Clearly not trained.
One good thing is that she’ll be able to pronounce the Spanish R 🙂
Hace ya casi un mes que le cortaron el frenillo, y aún seguimos con problemillas. Ha mejorado el agarre al pecho, pero tiene malos hábitos de comer con frenillo durante sus primeras diez semanas, así que nunca será perfecto 😦
Fue un momentito solo, y lloró más por estar agarrada que del corte (o eso me digo yo). Sangró muy poco, y casi toda la sangre salió al rato cuando echó leche rosa!
Le recomiendo a todo el mundo que vaya a alguien experto a revisar si su bebé tiene el frenillo corto; a ella se lo miraron en el hospital antes de darnos el alta y nos dijeron que no tenía problemas – sin ni siquiera tocarle debajo de la lengua! Claramente no sabía lo que hacía.
Un lado positivo es que no tendrá problemas para pronunciar la R 🙂
