My friends baby has it. He is now 16 months old and saying a few words, it hasn't seemed to have affected his speech but i suppose each case may vary. They are currently assessing him to see if they will operate or not but the plastic surgeon would not see him until he was 1 so i guess it will be the same for your baby. They will monitor your babies weight though as it is sometimes difficult for babies with tounge tie to feed properly.

i was tongue tied as a child I had a small op when i was about 9/10 yrs ish it didn't effect my speech just couldn't poke my tongue out as far as other kids or roll my tongue.
my brother was also tongue tied and someone said something to hi at school and he was upset so my mum took us to docs who said if we wanted then "sorted" it was a minor op, they cut a little triangle of skin from under the tongue and put in dissolveable stiches.
I have been wondering if my child has this as i did, do you mind me asking how you found out he had this, was it effecting the way he was latching on if you BF??

It was my midwife doing her home visits who first noticed it but now that he's much more aware and smiling all the time you can tell. Although, people don't notice until you tell them and when they do they think it's cute (which it is) so i don't think it's a major problem.

Since my last reply my friends baby has had his operation. It was under general anasthetic and he was fine. In reply to the person who asked how you know if a baby has tounge tie, the midwife noticed it after my friends baby lost weight. He couldn't latch on properly and subsequently lost weight.
