If a baby has a minor heart shaped tongue from being tongue tied at birth, but it was clipped, will the tongue alway look heart shaped or fade?

Resolves: Generally clipping this tongue tie, as long as the tethering part is completely addressed, will allow the tongue to take on the normal appearance and lose the heart shape. Honestly, however, it isn't the appearance of the tongue it's the function that impacts decision to clip. Poor feeding/latch/weight gain, feeds that take too long, maternal nipple pain etc are all great reasons to address it. ...Read more

My 1 year old son was born tongue tied the doctor we went to see said leave it to cut itself but now I've noticed he has a white patch under his tongue?

Likely normal: The frenum causing the tie can sometimes stretch as the kid ages and if it stretches or tears the attachment point may take on a whitish appearance during its scarring phase. A tongue tip that can reach over the bottom teeth is long enough to make needed speech sounds, so not all need clipping. Your pediatrician, ENT or dentist can advise you on your specific case. ...Read more
