"Guppy Pose" or Reverse Tummy Time:
Guppy pose is a helpful technique pre + post frenectomy! It helps with chin + neck extension - both of which are essential for successful breastfeeding. Babies with a tongue or lip tie struggle with extension because the tissue in the tongue connects all the way down into the sacrum. If your baby struggles with tummy time and seems like they are unable to lift their head and extend back this is a useful technique you can do at home! Lay the baby on their back and let their head fall off your knees. This lengthens the spine and creates space - allowing for extension and preventing any asymmetrical compensations on either side of the body!
