3.0 out of 5 stars Great initially but beware use with formula and built in obsolescence, 16 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got one of these teats with my (excellent) Medela Swing breastpump and it was initially great. My daughter took a few goes at age 2 weeks to learn to suck from a bottle, but when she had, she was very efficient, got very little wind and no colic and it was all fine. I therefore bought two more Calma teats and introduced a bottle of expressed breastmilk at the night feed.

All went well until age 7 months when all three teats perished within the space of two weeks. They all split around the valve in the middle of the 'lumpy bit'. This despite very careful and delicate cleaning with a soft teat brush. So if we say that each teat was used twice a week for 30 weeks, that is 60 uses for a £10 teat - not great.

We therefore purchasef two more teats from Amazon. At around this time we moved to using mostly formula for the late feed and this is where the trouble starts. I can confidently say you cannot use formula (any formula - we have tried all the brands) with these teats - our daughter sucks and sucks and sucks, clearly ravenous, and the teat clicks reassuringly as usual, but she manages to extract 10mls in about a minute. And she really does know how to use these teats - she has used them all her life. Expressed breast milk - no problem. I have read and reread the rather gushing literature that they provide with this product and absolutely nowhere does it say you should not use this with formula milk.

So a complete waste of two new teats...

Having been looking for a good book on stroke for a while. This is it. Would recommend this to Sprs (and SHOs) with an interest in stroke. Really good detail, strong on evidence base and yet written in a very readable style.

Atrocious. This man can't write novels and shouldn't write novels.

House of God, Bedtime Stories, The dressing station, etc, there are plenty of doctors who can write.

Avoid.
