Care after Tongue Tie Release (Frenulotomy)

Your babies behaviour

Babies react differently after the procedure. After the first feed, many babies sleep for a period of time due to the surge of adrenaline around the time of the procedure. They then may become more unsettled and ay be fussy with feeding for a couple of days.

Calming strategies

  • Cuddles, skin to skin

  • Frequent feedings will be comforting. It also means your baby is getting lots of practice at moving that more mobile tongue and any breast milk will help with the healing

  • Singing and rocking

  • Sling use

  • Co-bathing

  • Baby massage techniques

  • Sucking on your clean finger to calm before latching
