What is a tongue-tie?

A tongue-tie is a small band of connective tissue that runs from the center of the tongue to the bottom of the mouth (near your baby’s chin) and then connects with the underside of your baby’s soft palate. A tight band that attaches to the back side of your baby’s tongue will pull her mouth open, which can make it difficult for her to nurse effectively.
