cleft lip and palate

Clarissa - posted on 04/08/2013 ( no moms have responded yet )




My son was born with bilateral cleft lip and palate. He is now 5 months old. He had his first surgery on his lip around 3 months and his second surgery for his lip is coming up the end of April. His palate repair will be sometime around 1 year of age. It runs in my family (grandmother, mother, brother, and a boy cousin) and now my son. I ask my family questions and I understand fully. I've grown up around it and I am living it with my son. I pump breast milk and feed my son with a bottle. My big question is, were any of u able to breast feed at any point, or were u told u can't and just didn't try?
