Tethered oral tissues (i.e. tongue/lip ties) can lead to painful breastfeeding, inadequate milk transfer, limited weight gain for babies, and a number of other symptoms for a newborn baby. Dr. Patel will review some things to look for and discuss with your pediatrician or IBCLC whether you are breast or bottle feeding. Oral hygiene starts early and she will review how to care for your baby’s gums and teeth and what products to use and avoid. She will also review common (and uncommon) things that you may see in your baby’s mouth in their first year of life.
