My 6 month old boy has been doing very well eating solids (even loves his veggies!) but we're having trouble with food coming out of his nose. He has a bilateral cleft lip and palate, one side of the cleft was complete and the other incomplete. We've had one lip surgery so far and will finish working on his lip in August. The palate repair is set for next spring. We've been having to suction snot/food very often (which he hates) and we're hoping that this sort of thing won't lead to some kind of sinus infection or something. I mean it can't be good to have food in your sinuses. Any thoughts? Thanks!
