So I noticed my 3 month old son more then likely has an attached upper lip frenulum which is an extended upper lip frenulum. (An upper lip frenulum is located under the top lip, in the center, and attaches the lip to the upper gums.) So his frenulum is attached at the buttom of his top gums. I had no idea what problems it could cause or that this could even happen until I did research on the computer about it. I just noticed it one day that it was there. I realized that it may be the reason why he can't really hold a pacifier in his mouth and I always needed to hold it for him. I don't breast feed, I bottle feed, so that is not an issue. I know I have to talk to his pediatrician about it and have him look at it.
Has anyone else have had or is having this issue with their LO? If so what is your opinion about it and what should be done about it like surgery or not? Did your child really have speech problems with it if your child had this? Also what about the problems with teeth growing in? I am just learning about this so any info or opinions would be great. I am curious of other moms experiences and/or opinions.
