My tongue-tied baby had a frenulectomy at 4 weeks because it severely impacted our nursing relationship (pain and milk transfer problems). If not for nursing problems, I think I would have left it alone. In your case, it sounds like the natural process of loosening over time is happening, and I would wait and see how things develop. One thing I was told over and over was that they only like to treat if there is a current problem, not in anticipation of future problems. They did say my daughter's case would most likely affect speech and eating lumpy food, but that wasn't the reason we chose to treat it at the time, obviously.

Oh, and I had a tight upper frenulum that ripped naturally when I was a few years old, and it was no big deal.
