Abstract:

While most breastfeeding problems can be managed effectively by a lactation consultant, situations arise where conservative interventions are ineffective in improving symptoms of a poor latch. Infant symptoms (aerophagia, poor weight gain, falling asleep prematurely, or frustration at the breast) or mother's symptoms (pain, engorgement, nipple damage) can often be explained by tongue-tie or lip-tie. I will explain effective diagnostic strategies and surgical interventions (scissors vs laser) in addressing these problems.

Learning Objectives:

1.Demonstrate appropriate techniques for diagnosing tongue or lip tie 2.Understand the techniques for addressing tongue-tie or lip tie  3.Understand the classification systems for lip tie and tongue tie
