Many families are now becoming more aware of tongue ties and lip ties as they relate to an infant's health and breastfeeding success. The MILC Group is very well versed in both of these conditions and have been working to help families resolve breastfeeding barriers associated with tongue ties and lip ties for many years. Although IBCLCs do not diagnose these conditions we can assist you in observing these conditions and can report what we see to your care providers, provide referrals for diagnosis and repair and provide follow up support after these conditions are repaired.
