My daughter has ankyloglossia, also known as tongue-tie- but not the kind where they end up having a "V"shaped tongue. In fact, it's almost impossible to tell unless you see the underside of her mouth.
Having tongue-tie myself, I know that the one I've passed on down WON'T affect her speech majorly later on in life, but getting something which seems somewhat like a lisp, but doesn't sound like one (hard to describe... more hissy than normal sounds) , but I do think it's making it a lot harder for my partner to breastfeed her.
Anyway, I was thinking-- is there anyone on this forum who has, or who has a child with, tongue-tie?
If so, what do they do about it?
And, do you think we should have our child to get an operation on her tongue later on in life?
