Re: tongue tie/lip tie questions

Both my girls had lip-ties as infants. One nursed great, the other didn't and was diagnosed with a tongue-tie, too. Didn't have ANY ties fixed (just practiced latching/positioning better on my side etc), and they are doing great, teeth aren't too far spaced yet, etc. A lot can change in their mouth as they grow up. (my 8-mo DD with the diagnosed tongue-tie sticks her tongue out past her chin now!) I totally understand trying to nip things in the bud earlier/before they are going to remember it, etc.

ETA:I too have a lip-tie, but it has risen higher in my mouth and hasn't caused any spacing issues.
