How does tongue tie impact breastfeeding? A podcast interview with Catherine Watson Genna
October 02, 2012
How does having a tongue tie (restricted frenulum under the tongue) affect breastfeeding?
In this interview, Catherine Watson Genna, author of Supporting Sucking Skills in Breastfeeding Infants, discusses the types of tongue tie, what it’s like to nurse a baby with a tongue tie, what it’s like for the baby to have a tight frenulum clipped, and where to turn for help with a tongue tied baby.
In the interview Cathy mentioned two useful sites for mothers of tongue tied babies:
- Catherine Watson Genna’s pictures of tight frenula (“Is my baby tongue tied?”)
- Low Milk Supply’s list of health care providers who will perform fretonomies
