Published February 2016, VOLUME 137 / ISSUE Supplement 3
PurposeAnkyloglossia and shortened maxillary labial frenuli are a common malady that can have a negative impact on breastfeeding infants. These issues have been correlated to poor latch and potential aerophagia. The current GI and pediatric literature does not clearly delineate between aerophagia induced reflux, GER, and/or true GERD.
