Plunket takes the same perspective as La Leche League and the College of Midwives – mums getting an assessment from a trained professional to determine the cause of breastfeeding issues is key. It’s important to avoid unnecessary surgery, for the child and also for the mum – it is important that the correct cause of breastfeeding issues is addressed and the mum isgetting the support she needs to breastfeed.
When a tongue-tie is determined to be the cause of breastfeeding issues, parents can make an informed decision about whether they want their child to have a frenotomy.
Parents who have questions can talk to their Plunket Nurse or call PlunketLine.
