Stacey Solomon has shared a serious of emotive videos  on Instagram after discovering her son Rex has a posterior tongue tie.  

Sitting across from the tongue tie specialist, Stacey, 30, looks emotional and close to tears as she held Rex, six months, in the series of videos posted Saturday as she discovered the condition which meant she had great difficulty in breastfeeding.

Over the top of the footage of the specialist, Stacey wrote: ‘So, just met with the tongue tie specialist, and discovered Rex has a tongue tie. 

‘I’m putting this on here because honestly I can’t tell you how many people have told me they experience similar breast feeding stories and I really didn’t want anyone to go through a similar experience which could have been totally avoided’.

She then fought back tears as she said: ‘I find it quite emotional because I really really wanted to breast freed. If I’d have had it cut at the beginning it would have been a much easier experience’.    

She wrote over the next video: ‘I don’t blame the health visitors or midwives because he has a posterior tongue tie which is much harder to diagnose and they don’t get the extensive training they need to be able to notice them’.

She continued on the video:  ‘Really didn’t want to post this but then thought about any other women feeling like they didn’t do enough or got it wrong or just generally beating themselves up over their experiences and realised they all need to hear what Sam says… you did enough you did so well’.

The presenter revealed in October she had started feeding her baby son formula milk after her own supplies ‘dried up,’ and in a candid Instagram Stories post on Thursday she said still gets ‘a knot in her stomach’ when she thinks about it.

Prior to discovering Rex’s tongue tie Stacey was left feeling as though it was something she was doing wrong.  

Good response: The response Stacey received was overwhelming from others who had been in the same situation

She opened up about her battles with breastfeeding during a conversation with a specialist in the latest episode of her podcast Here We Go Again, as she revealed that she felt ‘really really sad’ at the prospect of having to ‘give up.’   

Speaking about how she should have sought advice sooner, she said: ‘In hind-sight I probably should have seen a breastfeeding specialist because they do offer that service if you do stay overnight in hospital at Queens.

‘They have breastfeeding specialists come round to make sure you’re doing okay, but because I thought he was doing it right I felt and went home. By day 5 he had lost so much weight. He was a small baby anyway and he had lost almost a whole pound’.

Grateful: She posted an adorable snap of her with baby Rex in the evening to tell fans that despite it all she is grateful

What is a Posterior Tongue Tie? 

  • A tongue tie is a condition some babies are born with that restricts the tongue's range of motion
  • Examples include being unable to push the tongue past the lower teeth or having trouble moving the tongue side to side
  • The term describes any band of tissue underneath the tongue that is short, tight, or stiff 
  • Tongue ties sometimes prevent a baby's tongue from latching properly to their mother's breast
  • Anterior tongue ties are easy to locate and see because they are near a baby's gum line when they raise their tongue
  • A posterior tongue tie is located deeper in the mouth, further underneath the tongue 
  • A posterior tongue tie can cause the same problems as an anterior tongue tie, even though it isn't as easily visible
  • Symptoms for a posterior tongue tie include: trouble latching on to the breast, constant hunger, colic, fussiness, slow weight gain or lack of weight gain
  • They are more common in boys than girls
