Medela special needs feeder is great
on 5 December 2007
Having been trying to get my breast fed baby onto a bottle for a few weeks now (quite unsuccessfully) I decided to try this bottle as it was reccommended on a TV program. I've tried her on a number of well known bottles that are supposed to mimic breast feeding, with no success. These may have worked fine if I'd started using them early on in breast feeding, but 5months down the line without much bottle feeding success at all I needed to try yet another type of bottle - one that works. I thought I'd give this a try as this also mimics the nipple but in addition, the milk is released in the same way as with breast feeding, therefore the baby doesn't have to adjust their sucking reflex. My baby took to drinking from this immediately & I can now get some respite on an evening. The bottle comes with a spare teet & valve & is relatively easy to put together & use (despite looking a little odd). I'd highly reccommend this to any other mothers needing to move over from breast feeding to the bottle. Although this bottle is quite expensive, I's say it's worth every penny!
