Does anyone know anything about a cleft palette. My friend had her baby yesterday and he has a cleft in his soft palette, and no tonsils or uvula. They said he will need surgery, but didn't go into details about when or what it will entail. They also said breast feeding will be difficult. Does anyone have experience nursing a baby with a cleft?
They also want to do genetic testing to rule out any other problems. Is that standard, or because they suspect something?
If anyone has any experience with this I really appreciate your info. Thanks
