Suck blisters, lip tie and posterior tongue tie

Second babies? Forgotten everything about breast and formula, napping and wrapping and you are are going a bit MAD because you haven't slept in three days? Or it's your first baby and you are here researching the joys of weaning?

J had a blister until he was 3.5 or older, but then he nursed to 34 mo. I just checked and what do you know? He has a lip tie... explains the horrific latch issues we had for months. :? No speach issues. Maybe a teeny hint of a lisssssp, but I have always thought it was normal.

Snarfy had a mild tongue tie that was never snipped. Haven't noticed a lip tie but he definitely had a feeding blister on his upper lip for a long, long time. I fed him til he was 2yrs 3months and the blister has only just recently completely gone - he's 4.5yrs now! He used to pick it off - that's why it lasted so long :?

I read similar websites about ult. But in the end I asked our very excellent dentist who told me they stretch and move upwards as they get older so not to worry. In fact that is exactly what H's has done. She still has a gap between her front teeth but I think it's pretty. A is the same. I'm not going to worry about his.

That's good to know A_W.

My dad's side of the family all have/had prominent gaps between their two front teeth but my dad has no ULT or any recollection of having one. So regardless of the ULT, my two might still end up with a big gap. Hopefully orthodontics have moved on a fair bit since the 60s though!

Thanks for all your replies.

The thing a lot of people in the IS seem to say s that if you cut the ULT early on, then gaps in teeth or irregular teeth and resulting orthodontics will not occur, or their incidence is much reduced. I am still dithering....

Oh and I checked both my girls and the have ULT as well, but not very severe/low down. It never caused any issues whatsoever. O's ULT is really far down though and will be in the way when the teeth erupt...

Don't worry about gaps in baby teeth Svea, they're a good thing! As someone else already said, the lip tie will tend to move upwards as O grows. I can count on the fingers of one hand the number of patients I've seen with a gap caused by ULT.

ETA I mean a gap in the permanent teeth.
