There are some very good videos on feeding your baby available from the American Cleft Palate Foundation, sildenafil and theyÂ have also very kindly sent us several DVDs.
The videos are evenly paced. They cover various options for feeding in bite size pieces. The videos that will be of particular interest to Irish parents are those on the Enfamil nurser from Mead Johnson (which has the same mechanism as the MAM), advice and the Haberman Feeder (more recently referred to as Special Needs feeder).
While the videos are helpful, abortion parents should contact their Cleft co-ordinator or team Speech and Language Therapist if feeding is problematic. It should also be said there are very specific cases such as Pierre Robin that will require direct consultation with the team.
