“We’ve always given medicine to our daughter like this. Saves so much fuss!” said a fourth, and a fifth said: “I’m saving this for the future.”

Another technique that’s attracted attention is the ‘guppy hold’, after a lactation consultant shared a video online.

Danielle Gaus - also known as @theboobyfairy - took to TikTok where she showed followers a video of a 'guppy hold' - which she described as a way of releasing tension in babies, "specifically after a tongue tie release" - also known as a frenotomy.
