BREASTFEEDING
& TONGUE TIE

BREASTFEEDING, TONGUE TIE &
DR. LINDA DAHL TO THE RESCUE

There are many benefits to breastfeeding, for both mother and baby. Breast milk is easily digested and provides the perfect balance of nutrients for a growing infant. It also helps to boost the immune system, which can protect against a range of illnesses and infections.

 

If you are a breastfeeding mother, you may have heard of tongue tie. Tongue tie is a condition where the tissue that attaches the tongue to the floor of the mouth is too thick or too short. This can make it difficult for the tongue to move freely, which can make breastfeeding more difficult.

 

If you suspect your baby may have tongue tie, it's important to see a doctor who can assess the problem and advise on the best course of action. In some cases, a simple procedure to release the tongue tie (frenotomy) can be performed, which can make breastfeeding much easier.

 

Dr. Linda Dahl  has extensive experience in helping mothers with tongue tie and other breastfeeding difficulties. If you are struggling to breastfeed, she can provide you with the support and advice you need to overcome any challenges. She has two main goals when it comes to tongue-tie: first, to help the baby latch on and nurse effectively; and second, to make sure that mother is comfortable while nursing.
