Special Feeding Devices - We enable you to help your baby when he needs a little extra support with feeding him breastmilk. How can we help you?

For babies who need a little extra help - Breastmilk is important for your baby, but natural breastfeeding is not always possible. Vulnerable babies who are unable to feed at the breast are particularly dependent on the strengthening qualities of breastmilk. Medela is an expert at helping these babies and offers all the extra support you need to provide your baby with all the nutrients he requires. Medela Special Feeding Devices, combined with care from you and their parents, provide the best possible support for your baby.

SpecialNeeds Feeder

Designed for babies with cleft lip and palate and babies with neurological disorders.

The SpecialNeeds 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-SpecialNeeds Teat
A smaller teat is available for weak or preterm babies: the Mini-SpecialNeeds Teat. Simply replace the standard teat with the mini one.
