Caring For Your Baby After Tongue Tie Separation

Caring For Your Baby After Tongue Tie Separation 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.
