In brief: Easy

Either your pharmacist or your nearest cleft palate center should be able to help.
Babies with cleft palates often have difficulty generating enough suction pressure without the use of special nipples if they are bottle fed.

In brief: Cleft feeding

Contact a local cleft cae team: they should have a nurse or speech therapist who can assist with feeding instructions and equipment.
You can find a listing of cleft team at the cleft palate foundation website (http://www.Cleftline.Org/) as well as useful information about cleft care.
