My baby has a Tongue Tie and my husband noticed it at birth - the midwife even wrote it on my notes. We thought he must be wrong as they did nothing. 8 weeks later with frequent feeding (hourly) and lots of pain - my Health Visitor finally sent me to baby cafe. Lactation specialist took one look and said he had a severe tie. Referred me. I was told 7 weeks waiting time! ! I couldn't carry on - so paid myself. Complained to pals who weren't interested as his weight gain had been fine (because he was working so hard bless him) and I had thought my pain was normal.
Midwives need better training and babies should be checked at birth if parents have concern and it should be snipped there and then.
