They usually do surgery within first few months of life.

My son was born with cleft lip. The doctors would not do surgery until he was over 10 lbs and over 10 months old. I was also born with bilateral cleft lip and palate, they would not do surgery on me until I was older- even though I drank through a syringe and tube.. if you have any questions feel free to message me!
