Despite the low-level of evidence supporting the correction of tongue-tie for breastfeeding problems, recognition and treatment has increased substantially over the last 20 years. Recent systematic reviews have highlighted the findings from available research, the gaps in the science, and recommendations for future research. This presentation presents the results of a review of original research on tongue-tie and its treatment via frenotomy. Learn more about the maternal symptoms and signs of problematic feeding that may be associated with tongue-tie in the infant and what the available research tells us about recommendations for infants with tongue-tie.

Learning Objectives:

1. Summarize the current research and recommendations for infant tongue-tie.

2. Identify maternal symptoms that may be associated with infant tongue-tie in the breastfeeding dyad.

3. Describe symptoms of problematic feeding for infants diagnosed with tongue-tie.
