comment Can you effectively influence the behavior of a 6 month old?
The professional term really is bilabial and lingua-labial raspberries, at least that is what I was taught. I see some related professions call it a "trill".

comment Are there things to watch out for after a tongue-tie operation?
I recommend 2 exercises. Tongue pops-sucking the tongue against the palate with the tip behind the upper teeth & releasing with the jaw dropping down as far as possible (almost like clucking to a horse) & Pull-holds-same as pops but hold tongue sucked against palate and jaw wide open for 5 seconds then pop open. Begin with ~10 reps and move to 150 reps 3-4 times per day. This strengthens the tongue especially for (l,r,sh,ch,j) sounds. Master pops then move to Pull-holds as skill improves.
