Designed for babies with cleft lip and palate and babies with neurological disorders.
The SpecialNeeds Feeder offers the following benefits for feeding your baby breastmilk:
Easy regulation of milk flow
The one-way valve membrane between bottle and teat means no air can enter the teat. In addition to this, the SpecialNeeds Feeder has a slit-valve which enables you to regulate the flow of breastmilk, by simply changing the position of the teat in your baby's mouth. Even if your baby only suckles gently, he is able to activate the breastmilk flow.
Support the fluid intake
Even with the gentlest suckling, the baby can be fed breastmilk, satisfying his natural suckling needs even though his suckling is too weak for breastfeeding. By squeezing the teat you can support the flow of breastmilk, so that it's easier for your baby to drink.

Pretty late to this post but just thought I'd chime in, too. My son was super picky when it came to bottles. We originally tried Tommee Tippee which he took for a bit. And, then suddenly he went on strike and we were forced to find something else he would take. From earlier efforts, we knew he only liked the wide nipples. So, I came across these and it was love at first sight. Sure enough, my son took to these like a champ. And, I love that the neck of the bottle is wide enough that I can fit my hand inside to wash.
