Vintage Baby Cleft Palate Medical Lot

Item ID: 2438 | Category: Medical

This is a rather bizarre vintage medical lot to help babies born with a cleft palate. Because they are born with a gap in their upper lip and/or the roof of their mouth they have tremendous difficulty feeding. Although rarely used today, these orthopaedic plates were used to form a vacuum in the roof of the mouth to assist in feeding until the child is old enough for corrective surgery. Also included are a pair of rare impressions and a soother. (Rubber Annie shown for scale)
