Medela Calma® - Breast Milk Feeding Nipple
Item #: 68020
Suggested retail price$17.99
Introducing Calma: Designed exclusively for breast milk feeding.
Switching from bottle back to breast has never been easier. Calma was developed using evidence-based research on babies' natural feeding behavior so you can enjoy your breastfeeding bond longer.
With Calma, the milk will only flow if your baby works to create a vacuum to remove the milk. This enables the feeding behavior learned at the breast to be used with Calma. Calma mimics babies' natural feeding behavior, so baby can feed, pause and breathe, similar to breastfeeding. The vented nipple is designed to help avoid gassiness.

Calma with 8oz (250mL) breast milk bottle, 2 lids and 1 cap
Important: Plastic bottles and component parts become brittle when frozen and may break when dropped. Also, bottles and component parts may become damaged if mishandled, e.g. dropped, over-tightened, or knocked over. Take appropriate care in handling bottles and components. Do not use the breast milk if bottles or components become damaged.

Calma has been designed to be used with Medela's bottles and containers. We have not done testing on other manufacturer's containers. You may find that you can thread Calma onto other bottles but you may find that this combination may leak or cause other issues. We do not recommend using Calma with any other manufacturer containers.
Calma has been designed to be exclusively used with breast milk and as such we cannot attest to Calma being used with other food.
Calma is compatible with all Medela containers, including the Colostrum containers, 80 ml, 5 oz and 8 oz bottles.
Cleaning & Care
Prior to first use and after each use:
Multiple nipple sizes are not required as the baby controls the flow of milk through vacuum. The baby will apply more or less vacuum to Calma as its need for milk changes throughout breastfeeding duration.
