Description Technical Specs
 
Medela Special Needs Feeder is designed for babies with cleft lip and palate and babies with neurological disorders. * By squeezing the teat you can support the flow of breastmilk, so that it's easier for your baby to drink. Babies born with cleft lip and palate, like any other babies, need to learn how to feed successfully in order to thrive and grow. If the baby has a cleft lip only (with a normal palate), he/she should be able to eat normally using standard techniques. Babies with cleft lip only can even breastfeed, if you desire.

However, babies born with a cleft lip and palate, or cleft palate only, have an opening in the roof of their mouth- between the mouth and nose. This opening in the palate makes it difficult to create the suction needed to pull milk out of the bottle or to latch on to the breast to breastfeed. This means that babies with cleft palate are at risk for poor weight gain because they use a lot of energy to feed.

Features
The Special Needs Feeder offers the following benefits for feeding your baby breastmilk: Easy regulation of milk flow Easy milk intake No spillage Takes less time for feeding Easy regulation of milk flow The one-way valve membrane between bottle and teat means no air can enter the teat. In addition to this, the SpecialNeeds Feeder has a slit-valve which enables you to regulate the flow of breastmilk, by simply changing the position of the teat in your baby's mouth. Even if your baby only suckles gently, he is able to activate the breastmilk flow. Support the fluid intake Even with the gentlest suckling, the baby can be fed breastmilk, satisfying his natural suckling needs even though his suckling is too weak for breastfeeding.

By squeezing the teat you can support the flow of breastmilk, so that it's easier for your baby to drink. For the very little ones: the Mini-Special Needs Teat A smaller teat is available for weak or preterm babies: the Mini-Special Needs Teat. Simply replace the standard teat with the mini one.

May reduce gas, vomiting and colic:
Many babies swallow air while using some ordinary feeders. This is because a vacuum builds up inside the system and the baby must release his or her lips from the teat to allow air back in. Consequently, air is swallowed with the next mouthful of feed causing gas, vomiting and colic.

The SpecialNeeds Feeder may reduce air-swallowing. It has a special air inlet groove which allows air in at the same rate as feed is released from the system. There is no vacuum to work against your baby's sucking efforts and air-swallowing is avoided. Even babies with cleft palates benefit significantly from this feature.

Compatible with any Medela or Ameda and other brand "standard neck" style bottles.
