Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Use Hazelbaker Fingerfeeder when baby cannot be fed at the breast to provide the touch of human skin as in breastfeeding. Allows infant to pace the feeding process. Fingerfeeder promotes proper and sequential contraction of the tongue and masticatory muscles. Trusted by Lactation Professionals when babies have feeding difficulties. Reusable, easy to assemble and clean.
Features
The Hazelbaker™ FingerFeeder is durable and can be used indefinitely for the same baby. It can be sanitized and sterilized making it ideal for longer-term use when indicated. Requires the baby to pace the feed. Milk will not flow unless the baby exerts effort that mimics good sucking at breast. As a built in feature of the Hazelbaker™ FingerFeeder, this infant control can be augmented by a gentle squeeze of the milk container should the baby not be able to generate adequate negative pressure to draw milk from the device. However, the top will pop off if the caregiver squeezes too hard thereby ensuring that the baby’s airway is protected from a flow rate that overwhelms their ability.
Although switching to a slower flow bottle teat can help with these problems, finger-feeding with the Hazelbaker™ FingerFeeder prevents the development of these problems.

Controlled Flow Rate:
Milk flows too fast from bottles for most babies. This overwhelming milk flow creates some mild to significant problems for the baby, especially if she or he is experiencing sucking problems. When babies cannot tolerate the flow, they suspend breathing, may cough, sputter or choke during the feed. The baby may develop a compensatory tongue movement pattern that protects the airway but does not efficiently remove milk from the breast. If a baby changes the way they suck because of bottle-feeding, known as Nipple Confusion, they will need to be retrained to suck properly at breast.

A baby may become addicted to the faster flow from the bottle. This Flow Preference, as it is commonly called, causes the baby to become impatient and frustrated at breast. Because the baby has become used to instant flow gratification as soon as the bottle touches his or her tongue, they often will not remain at breast long enough to pull milk out, expecting instant flow gratification at breast just as on the bottle.

5 of 5 Just what we were looking for November 27, 2018
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Florence, OR United States  
Slow drip is regulated by the height of the bottle, higher rate when further up or you can lower the bottle for slower gravity drip.

5 of 5 Life saver! January 17, 2016
Reviewer: Renee Boulet from Everett, WA United States  
We are using the Hazelbaker finger feeder to feed my 4 month old.  She absolutely refuses the bottle,  and I've gone back to work.  It's the only way her caregiver can feed her in a positive note fuss way.
