FREE Cutting tongue ties may not help infants to breastfeed
A diagnosis of tongue tie - a shortened frenulum - is often given as the reason for low milk removal and/or insufficient weight gain in babies and the rates of frenotomy are rising as fast as the diagnoses. Older literature suggests surgical division is a simple solution for breastfeeding problems yet, instead of improving breastfeeding rates, the frenotomies may lead to early weaning. Work from the University of Western Australia (UWA) reveals that the majority of women whose babies have a frenotomy have low milk production that is not resolved by the procedure despite pain during breastfeeding being reduced.
