I didn't know sleepiness can be a sign of tongue tie! How do you make them lift their tongue to the roof of mouth? DD won't open her mouth wide. LC and Ped say she acts like she is sucking through a straw. I know even with the bottle she seems to have trouble...I have never bottle fed a baby this young so I am not sure what is normal. She seems to let milk pool in her mouth and it spills out the sides.
