About the trial

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the majority of FROSTTIE trial sites have paused recruitment in order to ease pressure on NHS workers and maintain safety measures. The FROSTTIE team is working with sites to re-open on an individual basis and progress will be detailed on the News page.

FROSTTIE is a multi-centred randomised trial for babies with breastfeeding difficulties who are thought to have tongue-tie and who are receiving breastfeeding support and there is uncertainty about whether frenotomy would help continuation of breastfeeding.

The aim of the trial is to find out if skilled support for breastfeeding on its own, or together with a frenotomy helps mothers and their babies to breastfeed.

How do I get involved?
