Support on Breastfeeding and Tongue Tie

Successful breastfeeding

It is important to continue breastfeeding your baby on demand. This will increase your milk supple. Skin to skin contact is also helpful when milk supply has been reduced due to unsuccessful breast feeding prior to the tongue tie procedure:

  • Find a comfortable position for you and your baby
  • Baby's tummy must be against mum's tummy
  • The baby's nose must be opposite your nipple
  • The baby's head needs to be free to tilt backwards as he is brought to the breast
  • The nipple and as much areola should go into babies mouth
  • It should not be painful
