Congenital Cleft lip and palate is a craniofacial defect which results into difficulty in feeding because of the communication between the oral and nasal cavities. Feeding plate restores the gap between the oral and nasal cavities and helps in feeding and reduces the chances of airway problems, regurgitations. This clinical report describes a design and method of fabricating a feeding plate in an 8-day old neonate with a cleft lip and palate.
