So i guess i have to hope she won't have speech issues, if she does then it'll be cut then. So i'll likely be in the same boat in a couple of months...
Are you in the UK or US? DD was bottlefed and unfortunately there were still huge issues with latch - even now she still dribbles like crazy when she takes a drink! I would push for a second opinion to have your LO referred to have it cut sooner rather than later

Neither, i'm from germany.
With the bottles (we use mam) she doesn't have any problem so it might not be as severe..

But you're right i will get a second opinion as even if she won't have speech issues i feel sad for her for simply not being able to stick out her tongue. As weird as that may sound but isn't that just one fun part of childhood?

Just a wee update...

She had her procedure done just after 9, it took around 30 mins from start to finish and we were allowed to leave by 11.45. She's done amazingly - you wouldn't think she'd had anything done! She doesn't appear to be in pain and has been eating and drinking normally
