Why is my baby crying with feeds after the tongue tie release?

Some babies will require some paracetamol for pain relief after the procedure.

Some babies are uncoordinated with their sucking and this can be frustrating for the baby and results in increased crying with feeds. Some suck exercises can help in this situation, these exercises will be explained during your consultation.

If you have any concerns you can call the surgeon or the rooms to talk to the nurse.
