You are looking at it. As you read this we will be heading on a plane from Albany, NY to home. Why you ask? WELL, a few weeks ago I read an article from Ashley (an AMAZING Lactation Consultant, owner of Blue Cocoon) about Tongue Ties. I think we have all heard about this, but included in the article was something called Lip Tie. Something drew me to the article as soon as I saw that name. I had an inkling something was going on when Grayson got his teeth just a few months ago. You couldn’t see his teeth when he smiled. When I read Ashley’s article, I knew right away that it is what Grayson had. It is called a Lip Tie, pictured above.
VERY LONG story short, we had to go to Albany, NY to see Dr. Kotlow so that my little man could get his Lip Tie fixed. I have done a lot of research and talked to many different people about it and once I am home, I will write a complete post about everything! I want to bring awareness to this, in hopes that I can shed some light on the topic that it seems few people are talking about. I will say that little Grayson’s lip tie is a pretty severe case and so severe action needed to be taken, thus our road trip to NY :) I know this is not the case for everyone. I am writing this on Monday, so I hope to know more after we see the doctor in NY and hope that I can have more answers for you.
If there is anyone reading this who suspects their child has the same thing, please start doing some research and check back often, as I hope to have more information posted for you. Feel free to leave a comment with your email and I will make sure you get the next post. Also, if you have any information on lip tie or have your own personal story, please leave a comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
