My daughter is now 11wks and she was born with a large tongue on the right side only. The very first time i saw her at birth i noticed her tongue and pointed it out but i was told by a pediatrician it was just pressure from giving birth, and my midwife was not able to help as she's never seen anything like it. At two weeks my midwife referred me back to hospital where i gave birth to be seen in A&E by a pediatrician, Asante was seen by two baby doctors both could not tell me the cause of Asante,s tongue. I have now been referred to UCH Unverity College Hospital and they have not given me any solid answers or explain the cause behind the large tongue. I now have to wait another 6weeks for a Ultrasound scan requested by the doctor at UCH and i am waiting to hear what course of action will be taken. This has been very frustrating and hard as i am breastfeeding and its painful Asante wont take bottle i am constantly feeding i hope something is done fast or give me some answers
