Posterior ties are more prone to reattachment I think. Dr Kotlow (who is a world leader on tongue and lip ties) recommends stretching like this to prevent reattachment.

Are you able to get to Huddersfield? There is a dentist there who trained with Dr Kotlow and would be able to assess and revise if necessary using laser. His name is John Roberts and he is at the Cote Royd Dental practice.

You could also see if there is still restriction by doing this and seeing if a frenulum pops out.

Where are you based?

Thanks for your response. It's been done twice and lifted a number of times. I was given instructions to slide my finger across her lower gums to keep her moving it from side to side and to try and get her to suck my finger. She would never suck my finger though. I don't know what to do next, I'm getting desperate for some sleep!

Was it revised fully? Were you given instructions on stretching to avoid reattachment? Is there a lip tie?

Sorry for all the questions!

Have a look at the tongue tie babies support group on Facebook.

Hi there, I'm hoping someone may be able to offer me some advice and reassurance. I have a 3 and a half month old little girl who was born with a posterior tongue tie and high palate. I breastfed her from the beginning and am still now. Her tt and high p was not picked up until she was 8 weeks old and the tongue tie was divided there and then. The issue we have is that she always has severe wind which wakes her up constantly day and night and is leaving us both severely sleep deprived. The tt division made no difference and also a cranial osteopath didn't help. She now will only sleep when nursing as this is the only thing that relaxes her but that obviously makes the wind worse. Has anyone experienced this and did anything improve it?
