Publisher's Summary

Chances are, you or someone you know is affected by a tongue-tie. Common, yet little understood, tongue-ties can lead to a myriad of problems, including difficulty when nursing, speaking, or eating. 

In the most crucial and formative parts of children’s lives, tongue-ties have a significant effect on their well-being. Many parents and professionals alike want to know what can be done and how best to treat these patients and families. Now, there are answers. 

Tongue-Tied: How a Tiny String Under the Tongue Impacts Nursing, Feeding, Speech, and More is an exhaustive and informative guide to this misunderstood affliction. Along with a team of medical specialists, author Dr. Richard Baxter demystifies tongue-ties and spells out how this condition can be treated comprehensively, safely, and comfortably. 

Starting with a broad history of tongue-ties, this invaluable guide covers 21st-century assessment techniques and treatment options available for tethered oral tissues. Various accounts of patient challenges and victories are prominently featured as well. 

With the proper diagnosis and treatment, tethered oral tissues can be released with minimal discomfort, resulting in lives free of struggles during nursing, speaking, and feeding, while also reducing the incidence of dental issues, headaches, and even neck pain for children through adults. 

Aimed at both parents and professionals, Tongue-Tied encourages those affected while providing reassuring and valuable information.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Saved this SLP mom’s breastfeeding journey

As an SLP I learned that ‘tongue ties are controversial’ and that’s about it. When my son was born and couldn’t immediately latch I knew something was wrong, but was told about a half a dozen times that he didn’t have a tongue tie. I did research and advocated for my little guy and learned so much about what I can be doing for kiddos on my caseload along the way!

Excellent

It is an excellent book. I chose to listen to it as I do not have a lot of time to read. I listened in the car. it was easier to look at the book for the resources. Despite the narrator having a voice that is soothing enough to put Yunus sleep, he was not monotone and was able to keep my attention. He was clear and precise.
