What do I bring for my baby to the clinic?
If you breastfeed and are currently using a nipple shield, please bring it. Also bring some expressed breast milk or formula in a bottle if you can. The baby may not drink immediately from the breast because of the different feeling in his/her mouth from the tongue tie release
When bottle fed, bring some formula. Handy is if you bring some hot water in a thermos can.
It is not necessary for the baby to drink or have a complete feeding, it is just for comfort and may get rid of the strange taste.
Come if possible with two people, for example your partner, family or friends. Other children can be distracting (not for the doctor, but for your own attention).
If the baby’s BSN or health insurance numbers are not yet known when making the appointment please bring them to the appointment at the practice, so the secretary can write them down.
