Noon, do you have to undergo surgery in every case of tongue tie? R n My child is 3 months old, from the beginning of birth she drank breastmilk through a bottle, at first I thought I didn’t want to breastfeed right away because the nipples were flat but after I read even though the nipples were still flat can give direct breastfeeding, some say that my child has a tongue tie, the problem is that now my breast milk production is reduced, then I give additional breastfeeding. Is it possible that after surgery I can breastfeed my child directly?

Hi Vetty,

Tongue ties have several types of levels, of course not all types of tongue ties will be recommended for surgery, heavy tonngue ties will be recommended for this minor operation. Tongue tie is a condition where the tongue cannot move freely due to the tongue frenulum being too short. Generally, babies will cause difficulty when drinking breast milk.

If the baby finds it difficult to suckle milk properly, then the baby will not get an adequate source of breast milk, this in turn results in a decrease in milk production, causing parents to give formula milk and then it will make breastfeeding more difficult.

Therefore we recommend that:

Consult with a lactation specialist, trained lactation counselors, who can help you breastfeed well, and the baby can breastfeed well. Avoid formula feeding. Express your breast milk regularly as a source of breast milk for your baby when you are unable to breastfeed. The operation will only be determined after the doctor examines your child Breastfeeding children after tongue tie surgery should be postponed for a while, so that no bleeding occurs.
