Tongue And Lip Tie Faq  

There seems to be a lot of tongue and lip tie problems (ankyloglossia) going on lately, so I thought I would try to make an FAQ about it. I will ask it to be stickied, or bump it occasionally. I don’t know much about this topic, so everyone who does please add to this. Thanks .
