Lact-Aid Nursing Trainer System is a tube feeding system created to aid breastfeeding by supplementing Baby at the breast while nursing.
It consists of a container to hold supplemental liquid. A nursing tube reaches from the container to the nipple of the breast. Baby suckles the breast nipple and tube together.
This accomplishes several tasks:
- It assures adequate nutrition & helps maintain or re-establish the special bond of breastfeeding!
- It helps Baby stimulate breasts more effectively…as milk increases, supplement decreases
- It trains & stimulates baby's nutritive suckling reflexes…for improved coordination & skill.
- It avoids overtiring Baby & is often prescribed for oral physical therapy!
Some facts about supplementing Baby at the breast
It is proven that once bottle supplements begin, the breast receives less stimulation and consequently less milk is produced, and more supplement is needed.
It's a cycle that often leads to weaning.
The Lact-Aid NursingTrainer System provides supplemental nutrition while baby is suckling the breast. This avoids the use of bottles and artificial nipples which can nipple confuse Baby and reduce time and quality of breast stimulation. It also avoids using cups, droppers, and syringes with feeding tubes attached, which all can cause aspiration and choking.
- Lact-Aid Nursing Trainer System works safely & effectively…
- And proved by over 40 years of satisfied customers.
When to use the Lact-Aid® System
For many kinds of breastfeeding problems, Lact-Aid® System is just what the doctor ordered.
In fact, physicians, nutritionists, oral therapists and lactation consultants have been prescribing and recommending Lact-Aid® to mothers for over 40 years for situations like these . . .
- Low milk supply: When milk supply isn't quite enough, or full lactation isn't possible
- Slow gaining baby: When the doctor prescribes supplement to protect Baby's growth and brain development.
- Sore nipples: When Mother feels pain and baby doesn't gain due to poor suckling; suckling too hard or gum clenching.
- Poor suckling: When Baby suckles poorly due to birth drugs, birth complications, nipple shields, supplemental bottles, immature reflexes, illness, injury or birth defects, Down Syndrome
- Cleft lip/palate: When Baby has a cleft of the lip and/or palate
- Premature baby: When a preemie tires easily, has a weak or uncoordinated suckle, or doesn't stimulate breasts well.
- Delayed breastfeeding: Whenever premature birth, C-section, maternal or newborn illness or medications delay opportunity to begin breastfeeding, or if Mother begins to bottle feed but changes her mind, breastfeeding can be started.
- Working mother: When breast pumping at work doesn't keep your milk supply up, and weekend or evening supplements are needed.
- Adoption & Surrogacy: When Baby isn't homemade, but Mother would like to experience the special bond of breastfeeding, and provide some of the nutritional benefits of mother's milk to her adopted or surrogate born baby.
