Does anyone get any carer payments to help out while you cleft child has their first few surgeries?
My baby was born with a secondary cleft ( cleft of the palate)
We are waiting in surgery and at this stage with all the travel equipment and appointments I'm looking like ill have to return to work a lot earlier than expected, but it's hard as we have at least two appointments a wk and he has feeding problems and failure to thrive so I'm so disheartened to think I will have to leave him but financially it looks like that's they only option.
