My parents told me I had my tongue cut as a baby — probably a simple frenectomy.

The inhabitants of Vilanova de Lourenza would chase down a wren and, after tying it to a pole, would parade it and show it to the abbot of the local monastery, who would then offer them food and drink and appoint two leaders of the local town council out of the four candidates proposed by townsmen.
This tradition has been recorded since the 16th century. They made another version, "The Cutty Wren", on their album Time. The Chieftains made a collection of wrenboy tunes on The Bells of Dublin.
Stephen's Day, they would go from house to house singing this song and asking for money "to bury the wren". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about the celebration on 26 December in Ireland and other countries. For the English folk song, see Cutty Wren.

It might be helpful to have a 23andMe genetic test to determine if you or your husband have MTHFR or other genetic polymorphisms that would predispose your children to midline defect problems. You can still get your raw genetic data from 23andMe and use other websites to interpret that data.
I apologize if you misinterpreted what I wrote because I also stated right before that that I did not have, nor my mother, breastfeeding issues as an infant and I was advanced with my speech development. I did not mean to imply that touching your palate is the only indicator that a tongue tie is not problematic although it is a much better indicator than being able to stick your tongue out.
Being able to touch the palate gives the palate the needed stimulation for development and allows for proper speech pronunciation. My point was to prevent parents of newborns from simply seeing what they believe is a tie and seeking to have it corrected even if their are no symptoms present.
Many of the problems resulting from tongue tie are beyond the ability of a layperson to evaluate, and the problems that develop with age are not always obvious at an early age. Most doctors are clueless. With a laser procedure to correct a tongue tie being such an easy procedure, with no downsides that I am aware of, particularly if done when a child is very young, I would contend that it makes more sense to correct a tongue tie when it is first diagnosed. Why wait for symptoms to develop?
Brian Palmer, DDS has an extensive website presentation about tongue tie. He was of the opinion that there is no benefit to not correcting a tongue tie.
I understand that point of view. Despite having nursed two other children for a total of seven years, I did not have any idea what was going on.
It turned out that both of my eldest were tongue-tied, which was probably why nursing was painful with them…but at least they were able to extract the milk they needed.
We had it re-done with a laser when she was 2. I can imagine that some babies whose mouths are allowed to remain tied, but who experience loving bottle feeding, may be about tied with the ones whose ties get cut, experience some or a great deal of pain, and are then able to breastfeed.
My daughter never learned to nurse effectively, and this alone was devastating. A frenectomy which I think is the same as a frenotomy can correct an anterior tongue-tie. I had both an anterior tongue-tie and a submucosal frenulum, a type of posterior tongue-tie. Each of my 3 frenectomies, at the ages of a newborn, 16, and 66, provided a bit more release, but they did nothing to correct my submucosal frenulum. My reading indicates that a posterior tongue-tie can be very difficult to diagnosis.
My ENT said he had to clear out a lot of scar tissue under my tongue, presumably a result from the previous frenectomies. I have photos of before and after my Z-plasty surgery in June, and I find the difference in my ability to extend my tongue now is truly amazing.
So I totally agree with you, an effective frenectomy will not fix things in all cases. A frenuloplasty may be needed instead. I found my orofacial myofunctional therapist to be very knowledgable and helpful, more so than speech therapists, dentists, or most doctors.
I highly recommend consulting with a myofunctional therapist. Their association has an online directory. The ramifications of having a tongue-tie extend well beyond the issue of inability to breastfeed. My second and third children were both tongue and lip tied, a daughter and a son.
She was clipped at 2. I had a lot of breastfeeding struggles with my daughter before and while she was diagnosed, and we persevered thankfully. No nursing issues with my son, even though he was 4 weeks premature and took a couple weeks to develop with eating — once he got that, nursing has been a breeze with him.
I wanted to add that manual therapy and craniosacral therapy were helps for both my kids, especially my second baby with all the issues we had. She had a lot of tension from a fast, bumpy birth that played into her demeanor as a young infant.
The question I have is whether a baby before birth takes care of the methylation process by itself or does mother pre-break down everything for baby. In other words, if mother is taking methylfolate and methyl-B12, will the baby in the womb be okay even is hetero or homozygous until after birth? I just saw a myo therapist for the first time. She said I had a mild tongue tie. I can touch my upper palette, but, I do have an open mouth, tongue resting on the lower mouth resting position and a thrusting tongue swallow.
I also have a high palette that has given me sleeping issues. The information about pituitary function being reduced from a tongue tie is something I picked up from a teleseminar interview by Dr. Park, who specializes in obstructive sleep apnea and upper airway resistance. The information on past interviews starts here: I also listened to most of the dental discussions. Park made the point that the pituitary responds to the stimulation of tongue pressure on the upper palate, i. I seem to remember Dr.
Price dentist having a section about this in his book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. His treatment was palatal expansion and this led to pituitary stimulation that I believe he wrote increased their cognitive abilities along with improving breathing and facial structure appearance. He has pictures of this in the book with a specific young man. A wealth of other info in there too!
Oops, I assumed above that Lynn is a male; Lynn may be a female. Thanks for that mention. Mew, Belfour, and Singh, who use various methods of palatal expansion.
Would an individual with clef palate be an undermethylator or overmethylator? Or is this condition possible in either type of methylator?
Can someone please provide a link for some scientific proof that ankyloglossia is tied to this gene? I cannot find anything on pubmed, and I think I want to do something about this for my masters thesis.
My boy, age 4 was severely tongue tied but was only picked up at the age of 3. He has a speech delay and is not the best sleeper — all 3 signs of poor methylation??
