Re: Newborn - Is This Normal?

Just PM'd you, mama, but I forgot to include this:

A position which often facilitates latch for tongue-tied babies is this one: http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/...ge=34&p2506=80 The "biological nurturing" position. It allows the lower jaw to come forward more freely, allowing more range of motion near the hyoid bone, instead of the jaw falling back the way it's inclined to do if the baby is in the cradle hold. HTH!
