Tongue & Lip Ties

The Whole Care Toolkit

What are tongue & lip ties, how do they affect babies, and what tools and resources can families use? In these on-demand event replay videos, we’ll cover the basics of oral restrictions and dig into deeper conversations about how ties affect the whole body, development, and much more.

does this sound familiar?

  • You’ve heard that your baby might have a tongue tie but you’re not sure what that really means or what to do to help them
  • You’re confused about the choices you need to make after the results of a frenulum evaluation
  • Your baby’s oral ties were released but baby is still struggling with breast, body, or bottle feeding
Trust me, I’ve been there!

You’re experiencing this problem because…

01. There isn’t enough information out there

It can sometimes take knowing another parent who has been through a tongue or lip-tie journey for a new parent to hear about oral ties. Checking for ties is becoming more common, but not all providers have experience in this area or training, and some think it’s a fad.

02. Oral Ties Cases are Increasing

Whether or not it has to do with the increasing awareness around oral ties or the increased ingestion of folate during pregnancy to ensure the baby is healthy remains inconclusive, but people are becoming more aware of ties as the number of babies with ties cases increases.

03. It takes a team approach

The care team approach is really the missing piece to any oral tie journey. Without it, an oral tie may be released but continue to work the way it always has due to muscle memory. In this Whole Care Toolkit, we give you missing tools to add to your toolbox so that you can put the pieces together.


You Knew What to Do

  • Less family stress and frustration
  • Your baby’s mood and development are noticeably different
  • Your feeding goals are within reach
  • You know which providers to see and how to help your baby
