Hi Ria,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

It needs to be clarified, what about your child's current growth status (height, weight and head circumference), is it appropriate for his age?


Lip tie is a condition in which there is a kind of rope that attaches the lips (either up or down) to the base of the gums and oral cavity. The cause is usually purely due to genetic variation during development in the uterus. This condition does not always require special handling. Therefore, it must be evaluated first, how annoying this lip tie is.


Having a feeding sound, such as "ckck", as your child is experiencing can be a sign of poor attachment. One of the causes of this condition is lip tie. This poor adhesion can cause breast milk to not be optimally produced. In addition, babies will easily feel tired when breastfeeding. This is possibly what causes your baby to nurse intermittently.


If this condition only occurs in the early days of your child's life, it will usually get better slowly as your baby becomes more proficient at breastfeeding. Of course, it doesn't take a short time for the baby to adapt to the abnormalities they are experiencing.


However, if the complaint lasts long enough, then this condition can potentially cause stunted growth of your baby due to not getting adequate nutritional intake from breast milk. In addition, in the long term, lip tie may cause the child to have difficulty articulating while speaking.


Therefore, try to get your child checked directly to a pediatrician. Generally, lip ties that are not too tense and can still accommodate the movement of the child's lips, including for breastfeeding, do not require special handling. However, if you feel that the lip tie has the potential to interfere with the breastfeeding process, then an incision can be considered. The liptie incision is generally a mild procedure, does not cause severe pain, and can be done on an outpatient basis, so that the child can return home and carry out activities as usual after the incision.


Hope it helps ..
