Q: Tongue tie division for breastfeeding?

Cute baby with tongue tieHave you (yet) had a parent ask for a referral for tongue tie division to assist with a poorly feeding baby? What is the right answer to this question; “Of course, there are good trial data to support it”,

“Well, if you want but there’s no good evidence for it.” or

“I think that any form of mutilation of a child without strong evidence is ultimately harmful and may be unethical.”

This answer to this question may well be along soon …
