Tongue Tie & Breastfeeding
Tongue tie is a condition which restricts a baby’s tongue movement. This can make breastfeeding difficult for a baby and painful for a mother and may lead to problems with milk production and weight gain.
This information sheet outlines treatment options and provides detailed information for mothers and those supporting them about specific techniques that can improve positioning and attachment and reduce pain.
Breastfeeding challenges can also occur for other reasons than tongue tie. Identifying the cause is important when deciding on appropriate solutions, so seek help from someone skilled.
