I have a beautiful daughter who was born with a cleft lip and palate. (she is a twin) We had to use the haberman to feed her up until she was 15 months old and could have her palate repaired. She is very tiny for her age and the surgeon wanted to wait till she was bigger and he had mor tissue to work with in her mouth. Anyway, my question is how go i get her to use a sippy cup WITH a valve like her brother? She knows how to dump the milk out everywhere. She uses a cup great but when i put the valve in she gets mad because it doesn't just flow out. There is still a fistula (I think that's what it's called) on the roof. I'm afraid that she might not have suction yet. What are your thoughts?
