Feeding Equipment


Your cleft team or local hospital may have their own feeding guidelines so do ask them for advice. The Cleft Lip and Palate Association recommends that normal feeding methods should be encouraged.

Breast feeding is possible for a baby with a cleft lip and where the cleft in the palate is small or narrow. Some babies may need breast milk expressed into bottles to supplement feeding on the breast.

We would stress that there is no miracle teat or bottle that suits all babies. The aim is to have a relaxed mother and a contented baby. The midwife, health visitor, cleft team advisor and mother should all work together to find the best solution for each baby.
