Dr. Kar Mun Chan strongly encourages all mothers who have babies struggling with feeding to find a good lactation consultant. They can help to identify any strategies to overcome the breastfeeding problems and to check if there is a tie under the baby’s tongue. Sometimes they are quite hard to detect and not as obvious as it seems.

If you have a child with speech; swallowing; or oral function problems we suggest visiting a speech therapist for an assessment and again to determine if there is perhaps a tongue tie.

Below you will find the contact details of providers that we recommend and have worked with. It you have any questions in regards to additional help you may need, please contact the Kiddies Infant Care team for us to help point you in the right direction.
