Re: my 15 month old is tongue tied

  • My LO was tongue tied, but I noticed it at birth because his tongue was heart shaped.  I was able to bring him to an ENT and they clipped it in their office.  Good luck!
  • I was never able to breast feed! So I just pumped for 4 months then switched to formula...His tongue is also heart shaped but it never crossed my mind...I would figure a Dr would have noticed..

  • My first son had the surgery at 18 months.  He was not away from me more than 20 minutes.  It was tough on me (was 39 weeks pregnant at the time) but he came through no problems.

    His language came along around 20-22 months (unrelated to the surgery) although he still makes his 'ells' incorrectly which means some word/sound combinations are hard for him.

    He'll be attending speech therapy again in the new year. Smile

    Good luck!
