Agree with crikeybadger that some tt babies can still stick out their tongues.
DS1's was never discovered (in fact nobody even looked) but it would have taken somebody using their fingers to find it. It is attached normally to the tongue, but the other end doesn't attach to the floor of his mouth, but instead fixes in two places to his gums.
If you suspect tt OP, then stamp your feet til somebody who knows what they are doing looks at it. DS1 is suffering the effects of it at age 6
Hi dogears I commented on your other thread. My dd could still stick her Tongue out a bit and she had a posterior tongue tie. Harder to diagnose you need a real expert. After she had it clipped she was sticking it out all the time like she had a new thing to play with! Hopefully your wife can get down to the breastfeeding cafe and if there's nobody there with the knowledge they will know where to point you both next. Keep encouraging her to keep going, you will get it sorted
Thanks for all the responses, we're hoping to visit a local baby cafe on Thursday. We took DS to the GP today who agreed it does look like he has a slight tongue-tie and she confirmed our best course was to visit the local baby cafe and they would be better placed to help diagnose and rectify any problems we are having breastfeeding. Cheers again, Dog Ears.
