"The Incredible Progress of Lily": a Father's Story

Posted on March 29, 2014 at 7:20 AM

Lily is a patient who had Posterior Laser Tongue Tie Surgery at two months old. Both parents stayed in the surgical suite with her throughout the procedure.

 

Hi Dr. Siegel,

 

Thank you for your kindness.

 

I did dig up a few photos that show the incredible progress of Lily, which took a while. She was quite skinny relatively for about 4-5 months, but then really got the hang of breastfeeding and is now feisty and tall. No comparison to how we started out.

At 2 months it was still a struggle to gain weight - but at that time it improved significantly. It is such a negative spiral- the baby does not suckle correctly, the mother does not produce the needed milk due to a perceived lack of demand and so forth. The lactation consultant said you did an excellent job, too.

Thank you so much again,

-K. H., Lily's Father
