My son was also had tounge tied, the doc told me when he has a month old. I decided to get it snipped when he was 3 months old. He is now 3yrs old and has perfect speech. Good luck!

My now 2 1/2 yo is tongue tied. His is actually pretty severe, but it wasn't noticed until he was 6 months. By the time he went to an ENT doctor for it, they suggested we wait to see if it would affect his speech. We waited -- he's not having any problems with speech at all. In fact, his speech is crystal clear. His twin, who isn't tongue-tied, is harder to understand. I know mispronouncing some sounds are normal at that age; I'm not sure if "L" sounds are on the list. I would try comparing him with other kids his age to see where he is and also ask your doctor. My guess is he is fine!

My son had his frenulectomy when he was just 4 days old. He did great with it, had a little trouble eating when he first had it done. The biggest complaint I've heard about waiting to do it is that it's harder for the child to adjust because they are already used to eating, and speaking, etc. I would set up an appointment with an ENT, and go from there. They can suggest it, or address any concerns/apprehensions you may have about it now. Good luck!

My brother in law is. He speaks normally, in fact his parents had no idea that he was until he told them as an adult. He can't lick ice cream though... that seems to bug him.

Hi. My son is also tongue tied. His speech is really good except for the "l" sound. It is just a tough one for kids this age. I wouldn't worry yet.
