Abstract

Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common congenital craniofacial malformations. It is associated with various problems such as difficulty in sucking, nasal regurgitation, hearing and speech problems, etc. Feeding is of primary and immediate concern for the growth of infants. In this case report, a 3-month-old female child diagnosed with Veau's class II cleft reported with the difficulty in sucking of milk and nasal regurgitation while feeding. To overcome this problem, a feeding plate was fabricated with simple impression method, which helped the infant feed and restore the proper weight required for cleft palate reconstructive surgery.
