Lip Tie

Can a baby be lip tied on top? It seems the line that attaches his lip to his gum is very tight and short on top. He has always had a weak latch and still does which has effected my supply. His top lip likes to curl in still at 5 months unless I flip it out. Then the latch weakens.

Yep! Go to kiddsteeth.com and look for stuff about a lip tie. My DS had one and it was released!

On my smart phone which is clearly not as smart as it seems to believe

We took Mason to a pediatric dentist but I've heard of some moms going to an ENT.

Does she have a weak sucking reflex? It just seems like his suck is not as strong as my other 3 were. Would his pedi be able to refer us to a pediactric dentist?
