Clip the tongue tie: Some babies are born with an extra piece of tissue anchoring the tongue to the floor of the mouth. Occasionally this restricts tongue movement enough to interfer with nursing. Your pediatrician (or sometimes an ear, nose, throat specialist) can simply cut the excess tissue and fix the problem in a few seconds. Until then feed your baby expressed breastmilk with a syringe or bottle. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
