You can breastfeed your baby in numerous positions. When your firstborn comes along, breastfeeding is new to you so you might want to try out some positions to figure out which are most comfortable.
As you become more confident with breastfeeding, you can then experiment with different positions. Before you know it, you will find the one that works the best for you and your baby.
Tongue tie is a fairly common condition in newborn babies; more so in boys than girls. The skin joining the tongue to the bottom of the mouth is shorter than normal, which can cause difficulties in breast or bottle feeding. It’s considered a hereditary condition, seeing as there are no known causes.
Tongue tie can be easily corrected using a quick and simple surgical procedure. The tongue is separated by cutting the skin below it. In most cases, this can be carried out without anesthetic, as there are hardly any nerve endings under the tongue, and feeding can go back to normal within 24 hours.
