hi wendy sorry for not replying sooner, kalebs recovery after palate op was really good he was straight back on the bottle and even eating by the next day,

As for the weaning from bottle to cup, i have no advice sorry, kaleb is still on bottles noe and is 15months old still has a dummy too, he will only drink juice from a cup though which he took to on his own, mind u i think we own every cup possible

Hi Melissa, my name is Wendy and i have a 4 year old boy and my little girl is 9 months and has cleft lip and palate.  She had a her lip repaired when she was 5 months and she is going to get her palate repaired in a couple of months or so.  What did you have to do in order to get Kaleb ready for his palate surgery and how was the recovery?  We're on Toronto Ontario, Canada and we're at The Hopsital for Sick Children, and our surgeon is saying she must be weaned from her Haberman bottle to a sippie cup by the time she has her surgery and Maddy is having a hard letting her bottle go.  Any advice?
