Lip tie question


Hello from Tucson :)

My daughter just had her posterior tongue tie clipped (from a provider here in town) yesterday. She also has a pretty thick lip frenulum but the provider said he wouldn’t clip that area. She is not able to flange her upper lip during breastfeeding. I do it manually but then it goes back to her preferred position. My question is: how long do I give it with just the tongue tie clip to see improvement before I should potentially look into a second opinion on the lip tie? Thank you so very much!!

Every provider feels differently about this situation. The best thing would be to revisit this with the provider who did your procedure. At Agave, we usually give it a couple of weeks for the latch to improve and reevaluate. We will be happy to see you at our Chandler location if you like. Please feel free to call 4805855200.


Thank you so much! I will give it some time and keep working with my IBCLC. I will keep your contact information- I appreciate it!
