The fact that you are already planning for the possibility is a sure sign that your second baby issues around tongue tie and recurrent mastitis and abscesses for yourself won't happen - because you will act with speed and clarity if you observe even a moderate or subtle tongue tie in your third baby.
It would be wise to discuss your concerns with your midwife or obstetrician during your pregnancy and have them check your baby's mouth soon after birth when a tongue tie is quite easy to see when the baby utters its first cries.
Also observe your baby's latching carefully and if this is painful or baby is slipping off your breast onto the end of the nipple stop immediately. And if repeated latching doesn't sort out the challenge see your LMC or a Lactation Consultant at the maternity hospital or at the nearest Plunket Family Centre as soon as possible.
