MEDELA SpecialNeeds Baby Bottle

It is a special bottle for those babies who are not able to create a vacuum due to certain syndromes and neurological disorders , or because they were born with a cleft lip or palate.

The SpecialNeeds bottle is designed to allow the baby to express milk by compression when it cannot create the necessary vacuum to extract it .

The one-way valve prevents air from entering the nipple . The caregiver can easily control the milk flow thanks to a split valve mechanism.

It can be used with teats of two different sizes.

In addition, the SpecialNeeds bottle offers the opportunity to adapt the flow of liquid to the needs of the infant . Use the lines on the nipple to determine the flow of liquid.

  • The shorter line corresponds to zero flow.
  • The middle stripe , with a medium flow.
  • The longest line , with the maximum flow .
  • To select a flow rate , align the corresponding stripe on the nipple with the infant's nose .

Medela SpecialNeeds Baby Bottle Milk flow control

Choose zero flow (the shortest line ) if the infant needs to get used to the nipple before starting feeding .

Materials: valve membrane and silicone nipple . The rest of the bottle is made of polypropylene.
