|Although most mothers and babies can breastfeed without special assistance, sometimes more help is needed. Premature babies, babies with specific impairments may require extra assistance. The Medela Special Needs Feeder helps ease feeding complications. For babies with nursing difficulties, particularly children with cleft lip/palate, weak babies or babies with Down’s syndrome or other neurological difficulties. The SpecialNeeds 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.
