We have a discussion about the differences in how babies respond to the procedure, the aftercare exercises and how long it takes some babies to recover from the procedure and mothers and babies to get to the place of normal breastfeeding. Dr. Agarwal highlights the fact that the tongue does not know how to really move well as it has been restricted for so long. So all the mechanics of the tongue movement and how it is going to function – all this change needs an adjustment period. It takes a while for the tongue to figure out what it is suppose to do. There are also a lot of pieces to this recovery and normal breastfeeding. Some of these moving parts ( variables) are:

1. Mom’s breast size,

2. Mom’s milk production.

3. Mom’s pain level

4. Mom’s perception of babies pain

5. Babies pain or soreness level

6. Babies, palate, jaw, tongue length, just to name a few variables.

Because this is so long, myself and others have picked up a habit of calling ourselves LCs or lactation consultants. This was fine for a while, however in recent years there have been many weekend or week long courses that have cropped up and when a person graduates from that course, they can call themselves a LC ( lactation consultant) or or an LS ( lactation specialist)or BC (breastfeeding counselor) or CBC ( certified breastfeeding counselor) or CLC ( certified lactation consultant) or any number of titles.

Dr Rajeev Agarwal is a local pediatrician in Arizona. He has a beautiful wife and 2 children. Dr. Agarwal moved to Arizona in 2005 and opened his first office the same year. If you are ever in the area, you must take a tour of his amazing office, It truly is a treat. He has since moved to a second office. Over the years, he has received many awards, which he proudly displays in his office. He is an expert in tongue tie procedures and has performed many over the past few years. He is also a member of the (IATP) International Association of Tongue Tie Professionals. Dr Agarwal is in hot demand as a speaker and has spoken world wide.

Dr. Agarwal was born in India, and grew up in different cities because his father worked for the government as a telecommunications engineer and he would get transferred to different cities every few years. His mother stayed home with her 4 children. Dr. Agarwal describes his growing up years as being very blessed and living a very charmed life with doting parents and siblings. He was very creative with painting and drawing. His mother leaned towards treating childhood illnesses with home medicine and this is where the seeds were planted for being a physician and using natural medicine. He started engineering school and did well, but it was not very fulfilling. He did really well with it but did not feel the love. It was his sister who saw in him that he did not seem very happy with this. Since she saw that he was always the one asking people how they were doing and was so kind and caring, that perhaps he would enjoy being a Doctor. He said okay, took the exam and was accepted into medical school. As a kid growing up, it is not anything I ever thought I would be doing. We are a very close knit family She was in medical school. She said you will probably enjoy medicine more than the physics and math and I am so glad that she suggested as this was the best decision I made in my life.
