My son is almost 6 months old, he was born with a cleft of his soft palate. We did not find out until his birth. I have been pumping and feeding him breast milk using a Mead Johnson bottle. Although I am exhausted I continue to do it. His pediatrician has suggested beginning to feed him rice cereal. The problem I am encountering is that he seems to push the cereal up into the cleft and it is coming out his nose. He is frustrated and so am I. Any suggestion or tips on beginning solids would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!
