Is your baby tongue-tied or lip-tied?
Why go one more day struggling with nursing? Your own milk is the best, but if your baby can't latch properly, then nursing may be painful and frustrating for both of you.
Although Dr. Boldt was treating adult patients with laser, she had never helped babies until 2012, when she was trained by pediatric dentist Dr. Kotlow from New York.
A simple frenectomy is done with a soft-tissue laser that releases the tethered lip and tongue so that your baby can nurse more easily. This translates to growth of your baby, less time per feed and possibly fewer feedings so you can get more rest!
