Cleft palate

Dd2 is 2 weeks old and was diagnosed with a cleft palate seconds after birth

She regularly vomits milk no where near a feed and at the moment is very snuffly, I'm not sure if this is the start of a cold, dd1 has one, or if it's to do with how much has gone up her nose the last two days

Iv been in contact with my local team who've been very helpful but I wondered if anyone has been in the same situation and if you
Might have any advice to offer

No practical info, df had a dd with a cleft in the soft palate. Feeding was an issue, couldn't bf and had iirc a bottle with a special teat and the bottle was squidgy. Would look outside of mn and check out forums for clefts. I did this for support when ds was diagnosed with a rare condition and the expert knowledge and info was amazing.

Congratulations flowers
