If you are like and don’t know what a frenectomy is then you will also know that I had no idea what a baby frenectomy was and how it would affect my son.
As a new parent, you realize that no one tells you what can happen to your baby. Whoever thought my son would have to get a frenectomy.
A frenectomy is a formal word for a lip/tongue tie procedure for those who don’t know what a frenectomy is.
This post is about a baby frenectomy.
Typically only breastfeeding moms/parents have heard about it because it’s tied to babies latching with feeding. But more recently, there are times where children have them. Which leads them to get braces to close the gap in their mouth because of that extra skin there.
Looking back on the experience, it taught me a lot about what my parents didn’t know. Also, it lets me know that we have come a long way with technology in just my life. We have these resources to decrease his chances of having destructive dental issues.
I’m taking you along as we go with Noah to finally get his tongue and lip tie procedure in this vlog. This tongue and lip tie procedure is something that we have thought long and hard about before agreeing to get this done for our son, Noah. A tongue and lip tie procedure can be a lot for the family and the child.
Products to use for recovery of Baby Frenectomy
If you don’t know what a tongue or lip tie is, I will be showing you as my 9-month-old gets this procedure. As mentioned in a previous video, this has been a long time coming. For the first week of recovery, I decided that it would help show my son’s recovery process to help other families who might have questions or go through the same thing.
