Little girl is home with mom and dad and brothers. She's doing fantastic! She's able to breast feed but can't get a good suction because of the cleft in the soft pallet. So she does nurse from mom but it's difficult and wears her out. The Dr browns speciality feeder bottle is amazing. It helps with the suction. A lot less air swallowed , less burping, less gas.
We're hoping the soft pallet And lip can be repaired at the same time but won't know til we see the Dr.  Not really sure how feeding will be done after the repair... we still have so much to learn. The cleft mom support group on FB has been a wealth of info as well as supportive.
I just can't stop looking at her.... sweetest feeling ever!
