& Lip Ties

There are so many reasons babies struggle to eat and tethered oral tissues are just one of them.  We provide functional feeding and oral motor assessments to help determine if a tie could be causing your baby's feeding difficulties, or not.   We develop a collaborative treatment plan and provide oral motor rehabilitation and feeding therapy before and after tongue/lip tie releases to help you meet your feeding goals.


Symptoms that may indicate a tongue or lip tie:

  • Shallow or difficulty maintaining latch

  • Painful breastfeeding

  • Clicking while eating

  • Choking/coughing

  • Lip blisters

  • Chomping on breast/bottle

  • Excessive gas/spit up


Whether you are needing to spend time away from your baby, returning to work, or hoping to wean, we can help. We work together to determine why your baby is having difficulty accepting a bottle.  Whether they used to take a bottle and suddenly stopped or have never taken a bottle, we will develop a plan to help you meet your feeding goals.

Bottle refusal consults include:

  • Detailed feeding history

  • Oral function assessment

  • Bottle observation

  • Bottle trial

  • Step by step written care plan
