The breastfeeding friendly bottle feeding solution.
The Medela Calma provides the ideal solution for breastfeeding mothers who do not want bottle feeding to interfere with breastfeeding. It allows baby to maintain their natural feeding behaviour, making it easy for baby to switch from breast to bottle and back. The Calma teat has a well-researched and innovative design that allows baby to suck, swallow and breathe, as learned on the breast. With other conventional teats, baby must learn a new technique: milk just flows from most bottles with little effort and your baby has to learn to stop the flow to enable natural pausing and breathing.
1 x Calma Solitaire Teat, 1 x 250ml Breastmilk Bottle, 1 x Lid, 1 x Protective Cap.
Additional Information about Medela Calma:
Our latest studies with researchers from the University of Western Australia show that creating a vacuum is essential to successfully breastfeed. Babies learn very early on that they have to produce a vacuum for the breastmilk to flow. Their natural way of sucking requires intensive work during breastfeeding!
Standard teats accelerate an unnatural technique
When you give your baby a bottle with pumped breastmilk and a standard teat, it learns a different technique as to when you breastfeed it. The pumped breastmilk flows automatically and does not stop when the baby wants to pause or breathe. So the baby chokes more easily and can develop difficulties in its regular breathing.
Medela Calma breastmilk teat Calma - the best teat for your baby
For a mother looking for the optimal teat to feed her child breastmilk, Calma is the ideal solution. Calma was developed based on the results of our studies with the University of Western Australia. That's why Calma is the ideal teat for babies who are being breastfed with breastmilk, as it allows them to suck, swallow and breathe, as learned on the breast. Whether you breastfeed or use Calma, the baby has to create a vacuum for breastmilk to flow. As soon as the baby pauses, the flow is stopped, this is also the way with breastfeeding.
With Calma - the ideal breastmilk teat - your baby is on the safe side
Similar as with breastfeeding, your baby can drink, pause and breathe in its natural rhythm, create its individual vacuum through a combination of tongue and jaw movements, retain its natural way of sucking, which allows an easy transition from breastfeeding to feeding breastmilk with Calma and back to the breast.
A fool proof way to breast feed and bottle feed with formula or breast milk. I had issues with my milk with my first baby and had to top up baby with formula after breast feeding, these bottles made doing this so easy without any latching/attachment issues with bub and me when going from breast to bottle etc. He never drank too much too quickly and barely ever spat up what he'd had with the bottle. Brilliant product!
