Does your baby have a tongue-tie? 

Wondering what it is and how to treat it?

 I'm so glad you found me! Get ready for some massive support in your journey navigating your baby's tongue- and/or lip-tie!

The Tips For TOTS e-book will help you understand everything you need to know about tongue- and lip- ties (including pre/post release therapeutic exercises to re-train the muscles!), so that you can be confident throughout the entire journey, whether you decide to release the "tie" or not.

Have you been told that your baby has a tongue-, lip-, or cheek-tie?

Maybe you have had a tongue-tie release and your baby is still having difficulties with breast or bottle feeding?

Or perhaps your wondering if your baby's nursing / bottle-feeding difficulties, reflux / colic, general fussiness, or difficulties sleeping are due to an underlying problem like a tongue- or lip-tie.

Whatever the reason is, I am here to help!
 Gaining clarity around tongue- and/or lip-ties, understanding the importance of your baby's tongue function, and gaining confidence around what is involved in a release procedure and why pre/post release therapy is recommended will help you make an informed decision in terms of what is best your baby.

The Tips For TOTS E-Book brings awareness to tethered oral tissues (TOTs); will help you identify whether this may be affecting your baby's function; provides information on the release procedure, wound care and therapeutic exercises you can do at home; and will even help you get prepared in building your team (aka questions to ask a provider, who should be on your team and when).... all so that you can set your baby up for success in using their tongue, lips, cheeks and even jaw properly from the beginning (or close to it).

In this e-book, you’ll learn practical strategies and exercises that you can start implementing to support your baby's whole body development, while also focusing on tongue, lip, cheek, and jaw function so that they can be more successful with breast or bottle feeding (and with less pain for you!)

Wether you have already had a tongue/lip-tie release, are trying to figure out if your baby needs a release, or perhaps you are wondering if your baby even has a tongue- or lip-tie …

… the Tips For TOTs E-Book will walk you through what to look for in tongue/lip- ties, your options and which professionals to seek support from, as well as to provide you specific whole body and tongue exercises to practice pre/post release in order to get the best functional outcomes possible.

What the e-book covers:

  • What are tethered oral tissues (tongue, lip, cheek ties)?
  • How to tell if your baby has a tongue-, lip-, or cheek tie (no, just looking in the mouth or seeing if your baby can stick out their tongue is NOT enough)
  • Symptoms checklist to see if TOTs may be affecting your baby's function
  • What is involved in a release procedure (and what would happen if you decided not to release)
  • Why a team approach is so important (and who should be on your team)
  • How to prepare for a release procedure
  • Why active wound care management is so important (and how to do it)
  • Practical strategies and exercises to do with your baby to improve tongue, lip, cheek, and jaw function (aka tongue gymnastics and oral motor play)
  • Why it is not just about the mouth, but a whole-body approach is needed (and activities you can add in daily to support your baby)
This is for you if:

  • You have a baby or toddler, and are wondering if they have a tongue, lip, or cheek tie.
  • You want to learn how more about tongue-ties and why they are not just a 'fad'.
  • You would like to learn how to support your child before and after a release.
