The Special Needs Feeder is designed for babies who are unable to create a vacuum due to certain syndromes and neurological disorders, or because they were born with a cleft lip or palate. The Special Needs Feeder can be used with teats of two different sizes.
Special Needs Feeder, with 150-ml bottle
The Special Needs Feeder is designed to allow the baby to use compression when they cannot create a vacuum to extract the liquid. The one-way valve prevents air from entering the teat. The caregiver can control the milk flow easily, thanks to the slit valve mechanism.
Benefits of the Special Needs Feeder
- The line mark on the teat helps the caregiver to find the right position (three different flows).
- The slit valve makes the teat sensitive to any feeding effort and closes completely when the baby wants to pause. The one-way valve prevents air from entering the teat.
- The Special Needs Feeder comes in the standard size. If the baby’s oral cavity size requires the smaller Mini Special Needs teat, the teat can simply be replaced.
- The Special Needs Feeder can be reused after it has been cleaned in accordance with the instructions for use.
