Medela Mini-SpecialNeeds® Feeder (Sterile)
The Mini SpecialNeeds Feeder provides relief from lengthy and stress-filled feedings because its innovative design rewards the weakest suck, never floods, and helps reduct gas, vomiting and colic associted with air swallowed while feeding.
Use for oral/facial problems suck as cleft lip/palate or for feeding/sucking problems.
Rewarding even the weakest suck. Its unique teat is separated from the container by a one-way valve. Once filled, milk is held in the teat and cannot flow back into the container. Without air near the teat, all the baby's sucking effort is directed toward the fluid contents so even the weakest suck gets results.
Never floods. The silt-valve in the SpecialNeeds Feeder mouthpiece only opens when baby sucks. Baby has conplete control and is never overwhelmed with too much milk.
May reduce gas, vomiting and colic. The SpecialNeeds Feeder has an air inlet groove allowing air in at the same rate as milk is released. As air pressure constantly equalizes, no air re-enters the teat, thus avoiding air swallowing. This feature minimizes the vacuum build-up that could work against baby's sucking efforts.
