Article at Kellymom: Information is Your Ally in preparing to breastfeed: 10 Tips for Success

I would encourage any mom considering corrections to tongue tie to look at this article: http://www.pediatrics.org/cgi/content/full/110/5/e63
From memory I completed the tool today (Ollie's 10.5 mo now) and found that Ollie scored a 7 & 11 on the two areas assessed. Scores of less than 8 of 10 *AND* less than 11 of 14 indicate significant tongue-tie; truly his was/is a mild case. That, combined with the pain I went through, makes me think in retrospect we would have both benefited from having the procedure done.
I wish one of the 'experts' I'd seen had gone through this assessment with me at the time - or that I had known about it and could have used this to guide our discussion! I hope knowing this helps someone else.
