In order for breastfeeding to be successful it requires your baby to be able to latch onto the nipple correctly. When your baby has an upper lip tie it can prevent your baby from being able to flange. While they struggle to pop open their top lip and be able to successfully latch on during breastfeeding a lip tie inhibits this. If you have looked for help and are still struggling to determine why your baby is not successfully breastfeeding, contact Dr. Judy Strutz and her team today.
When your baby is properly breastfeeding the mouth opens wide and the upper lip flange’s up. This allows the baby to latch onto the breast and not just the nipple. It can be frustrating when you are a new mom and your baby is trying to eat and they cannot flange and attach correctly. While you may attempt to physically move the lip up with your finger, some moms have said this does not work and the lip will just move back into the incorrect position or the latch will break completely. You do not have to live in a frustrating situation get help today.
