Clefts of lip/palate are considered to beone among the most commonly occurring inborn deformities involving maxillo-facial region. Cleft lip/ palate can be syndromic or nonsyndromic. Feeding a newborn baby with complete cleft lip/ palate is a problematic pursuit because of the association between the oral cavity and the nasal cavity. An interdisciplinary approach is needed to manage such patients. Dysfunction of auditory tube, infection and effusion of middle ear, deafness, speech disorder, dental and orthodontic problems are usually associated with it. In order to prevent nasal regurgitation and seal the fistula present between oral and nasal cavities, feeding plates are used. Feeding plate is adevice that is made to reinstate the communication between oral and nasal cavities temporarily while feeding. The present case represents a -15 days-old neonate with complete bilateral cleft lip and palate (Veau’s class IV). Feeding plate in this case was constructed using extraoral silicone (RTV).
