Hi there. I have an 8 week old who we believe has an upper lip tie along with a posterior tongue tie. huge feeding issues at beginning which have now settled, but my baby seems to have reflux, colic, very frequent waking, excessive drooling etc. I have been recommended to see Dale Hansen at Premier Health in Kograh Sydney to have the ties released.
Would love some stories on who has been tonPremier health for same issue and if your baby had the above symptoms which seemed to ease once the ties were snipped?
Thanks everyone 😊

You've been referred to someone with an excellent reputation, and I've heard many people say that their babies feed much better after the TT and ULT release.

Prior to any treatment, your baby will have an oral (and feeding) assessment, so they wont just release the ties on the say so of someone else.
Or at least, I hope they wont!
Good luck with whatever happens and I hope you get some helpful feedback via pm.

Oh thank you. Sorry I didn't realise this was in the rules.
Ok, I guess my next question then, not related to this specific health provider, but are there any stories of positive results regarding tie releases and what symptoms did your baby no longer have??

I should add that once my bubs ties were cut she feed better and my nipples no longer hurt as much. She had posterior tongue tie (60 per cent restriction) and upper lip tie.

My son had a posterior tongue tie and upper lip tie revised at 10wks of age. He had many feeding issues as he was also born 10wks early. He also had issues with weight gain. I was expressing and bottle feeding EBM full time.  The procedure was painful but quick. He seemed to recover from it within 24-48hrs.

After the revision things didn't improve greatly with his feeding (still had difficulty latching, swallowing lots of air, falling asleep during feeding). So I persisted with expressing. I kept trying on/off to breastfeed & finally he got the hang of it at 5mths of age. From then on I exclusively breastfed (+ solids from 6mths) until he was 15mths when he self weaned.

For us, it's hard to say whether the revision made a huge difference with his feeding-maybe he would have got there in the end without it anyway? He's probably a bit more of a complex case though due to his prematurity & low birth weight. It was also very expensive to have the revision done.

I sent u a pm also.

Dd had hers corrected at 8 weeks.  both were quite severe.
While BF was too late to re-establish due to my poor supply and need to supplement with formula,  the colic and reflux improved

I dont regret having them snipped, i only wish id had them snipped earlier
