Hello,

We have to rule out possible causes like cleft palate, which is a congenital defect and usually comes to notice when baby develops difficulties in sucking the breast milk.

Most babies also have associated breathing problems like noisy breathing also.

However, other causes like herpangina also are ruled out. Consult a pediatric surgeon and get evaluated. Surgical correction is required and it is usually done around three months of age.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
