Special Challenges: Consult with Amey of Az Breastfed Babies
oral challenges including, but not limited to, oral restrictions like tongue, lip and/or buccal ties.

Is your baby struggling to breastfeed and you have met with your pediatrician, a lactation consultant or other provider and they say that everything is good but you know that it’s not?
Has your baby been diagnosed or has it been suggested that your baby has oral restrictions? (tongue, lip and/or buccal ties)
Has your baby had oral restrictions released and things did not get better?
Are you stuck using a nipple shield?

  • One of my (Amey) specialties is helping babies that are struggling after a tongue and/or lip tie release. The best scenario is when I can assess the baby prior to a release, but this doesn't always happen.
    If we meet before the release, I can give the parents a plan that includes how long to wait to do the release and pre-procedure exercises that will help get the best outcome. I also will discuss adding a bodyworker to the team for the best outcome.
    Sometimes the release is done and parents don’t feel like they have the support they need, or they are not seeing the results they hoped and thought they would.
    I have had special training in oral rehabilitation and I can help your baby integrate the release.
    These same skills can help babies that are struggling breastfeed better.
