Breastfeeding your newborn might seem like a natural thing, but it doesn’t always come naturally or easily to you or baby.

One reason some babies might have more difficulty breastfeeding is because of a tiny, barely noticeable extra bit of tissue under their tongue. This condition is called tongue-tie, and it can make breastfeeding more of a challenge for both of you.

Here’s what to know to help you make the best decision for your little one.
