The Special Needs Feeder is designed for babies with facial or oral problems that hamper their ability to maintain adequate suction for feeding. The specially designed valve and silicone feeder adjust milk flow to suit baby’s needs.
Premature babies, failure-to-thrive babies and babies with specific impairments such as neurological challenges may require extra assistance.
The Medela Special Needs Feeder helps ease feeding complications.
For babies with nursing difficulties, particularly children with cleft lip/palate, weak babies or babies with Down’s syndrome or other neurological difficulties.
It’s sensitive to the weakest feeding effort and features a one-way valve that prevents flooding or overwhelming the baby.
