Review how babies with tongue tie are treated & diagnosed

Petition Details

We want the Government to review how babies with tongue tie are treated & diagnosed. This should look at how effectively medical professionals identify tongue tie, and treat babies with this condition.

Additional Information

Babies are needlessly suffering with aerophagia related reflux due to misdiagnosis and management of tongue ties. This can lead to over prescribing of reflux medication.

A Government review could identify whether more training is needed for medical professionals, or whether new checks are needed for babies to to correctly assess oral dysfunction.
