I thought I would post a little more information about the Latham. It is a device that is surgically screwed into the roof of his mouth to mold his palate and bring the premaxilla back.

The rubberbands ("power chains" that are put on braces) are taped to his cheek so he doesnt swallow them.

The only way I could get a picture of the inside of his mouth was to let him cry :( poor babe.

The tape across his lip is to help push the premaxilla back. I have to change it twice a day (or more if he gets spit up on it)
