Stephanie interviews Leah Walsh, certified speech-language pathologist specializing in infants and children with feeding and swallowing disorders. We’ve talked about tongue and lip tie concerns from a lactation consultant’s perspective and  a naturopathic doctor’s perspective.  Today we further that discussion by addressing tongue and lip ties from a speech and language development perspective.


Topics Discussed:

  • Signs and symptoms of tongue and lip ties and how they’re evaluated
  • Techniques to help your baby transition easier to a bottle
  • Core principles families should have before starting solids
  • Baby-led weaning vs. purees from a developmental perspective
  • Red flags that a child may not just be a “picky eater” and need additional support
