How old is your son? My daughter had the palate repair at 1 year old and we had the same concerns but she did great with a sippy cup! The first couple days after surgery were a little hard but after that she did great! Kids are resiliant that way! I would suggest just try a little bit with the sippy cup before surgery if possible! Good luck! Hope everything works out! |
