Ah tongue- and lip-ties! We've heard A LOT about them from our podcast interviewees. Hope and I both have children who've had them. So, while not outside-the-box per se, tongue- and lip-ties affect many babies regardless of any other circumstances and so we wanted to be sure to address them.
Dr. Catherine Sledge is a family dentist who deals a lot with tongue- and lip-tie, and we are so thrilled that she was willing to take the time to talk with us and share her expertise on this very tricky and important issue potentially impacting breastfeeding...and so much more.

What do adoption, surrogacy, partnering with a birthing parent, breast/chest surgery, and insufficient glandular tissue (IGT) have in common? Parents who CAN and DO breastfeed. In most of these situations, parents will need to supplement their milk production with extra milk or formula in order to meet their babies needs. How that supplementation goes greatly impacts the long term success of breastfeeding. So, while we can address how to make the most milk possible, it is also at least as important to address how to work with what milk is there. In today's podcast, we discuss how to determine whether supplementation is needed, how much to supplement, and tools for delivering the supplement.
