DD 7months has finally diagnosed with an upper lip tie, she is clicky when she feeds, gulps lots of air which makes her uncomfortable and wakes her with gas, still feeds very fequently, when she is tired she slips off the nipple and tries to suck it back in resulting in sore nipples and im worried about her weaning early plus speech and dental issues.
I have been to the GP and have a referral to the peadiatric surgeon but have been advised they only snip under GA and she will need to go into hospital. Someone told me that a dentist can do the same thing with a local and laser.
Opinions please? Whats the difference between laser and snip? Anyone had an upper lip tie fixed?
