Hi, everyone! I'm Tara. I am 22 weeks pregnant with my third child, and we found out two weeks ago that he has a cleft lip. I will have another ultrasound in a few weeks and they will try to get another view of it. Over the last couple of weeks I've been doing a lot of reading, and hubby and I feel a huge peace about the whole thing. I nkow God will take care od us, but I think it will still be good to "talk" to others who are going through the same thing. I still have a lot to learn, and I need to talk to my pediatrician and get started with looking into the two cleft lip/palate teams in our area. How on Earth do you decide who to trust your precious child with?? Also, did any of you meet before your child's birth with the surgeons? I am also wondering about breastfeeding. I nursed both of my daughters and wonder if it will most likely be impossible to nurse a baby with a cleft. I'll definitely pump milk for him, but I know that I probably won't be able to keep that up for as long as I actually nursed my other two. Anyway, I'm enjoying reading all the info around here, and I'll definitely be back with more questions!
