Mommy Tips: What do you mean I'm tongue tied?!

June was born with a "tongue tie".  It's basically a little piece of skin under the tongue that prevented her from sticking out her tongue all the way.  She had sort of a "snake tongue" although we liked to call it a "heart shaped tongue" which made it difficult for her to nurse... Anyway - yesterday we took her to a great pediatric dentist and within 5 minutes, he clipped the piece of skin and we were on our way.  June was a trooper, I left the room.  No anesthesia necessary and she didn't even cry.  Here she is in the dentist chair for the first time.
