Newborns Tongue Training

A significant percentage of the population suffers from Ankyloglossia or Tongue Tie. This is a condition in which a tethered oral tissue restricts the tongue mobility causing it to be sub-functional.
Our double edged advantage
Tongue mobility has a direct and critical effect on everyday vital body functions of newborns and adults.
Tongue malfunction many times goes undiagnosed.
In infancy, tongue tie is usually diagnosed only as a result of moms breastfeeding challenges. Older children are sometimes diagnosed when experiencing feeding difficulties or dew to speech related issues. Adults find themselves later in life with severe body malfunctions that are sometimes found to be a result of a sub-functional tongue.
Infant’s tongue training wires the brain by encouraging the tongue for better movement and flexibility, thus reducing chances of future Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders and leading to a proper orofacial structure.
Each and every newborn tongue training.

Breastfeeding and beyond
Breastfeeding is clearly on the rise. A Sub-functional tongue restricts the tongue from extending and elevating optimally – impairing the baby’s ability to efficiently remove milk from the breast. Mothers who breastfeed Tongue Tied babies often suffer pain and sores on the nipples, Tend more to suffer from engorgement, plugged ducts, mastitis etc. Their nursing tends to be long and less efficient leading to maternal exhaustion and premature weaning. As a result of their difficulty to efficiently remove milk from the breast Tongue tied babies are under risk of insufficient weight gain. This might also decrease the mother’s milk supply.
