Would you like to see more reviews about this item? Here are a few things that I think you should consider: One end of the tube goes into the supplement, and the other end is placed right by your nipple. The SoftCup is ideal for the short-term feeding babies with sucking difficulties. Nursing for 18 months has made my nipples super stretchy, but they were definitely not that way to start if you're wondering, for some people they will eventually go back to being less prominent again. The bag clamping ring is used to create an air-tight seal between the nursing bag filled with milk and the collar on the feeding tube. Increase your milk supply with natural supplements.
Ready made with LOVE…
My medium flow tubing broke. Hi Maeve The set of tubing can be purchased here: The replacements that are available include all three sets of tubing and are item We hope you find that information helpful! If you have any further questions, please consider chatting with us on our website. Can you please tell me the difference between tubing in the starter vs long term nursing system?
Why can the starter only be used for 24hrs? Is there a risk of contamination if used for longer periods? Hi scmomof Given the intended nature of the Starter SNS as a temporary nursing support tool, current product design and material requirements are not intended or shown to withstand typical hospital cleaning or sanitization methods to allow for use beyond 24 hours.

I have ample breasts and always snuck the tube in after she was latched on. If you do it that way I just had to angle the tube coming from the side up over her tongue towards the palate. If I got it in right it worked great, but did take some work.
I didn't have to move any breast tissue to do it. Thanks Trevor for this extremely helpful and detailed post. This is my favorite method of supplementation, but just like you, I find that the first few weeks of using them can be mind-numbingly challenging I'm always looking for ways to make it easier. For parents who need to supplement small amounts only, I have found the Hazelbaker FingerFeeder to be a really nice option.
It holds 2 oz so would need to be refilled in the middle if the baby were taking more and is easier to rig up than the Lact-Aid. Avoid victimization the microwave for warming formula and microwave won't sterilize bottles, unless you get a special microwave sterilization kit.
It is dangerous to heat formula because it heats inconsistently and might cause heat spots within the formula, which may scald his mouth see more information. When making your home made supplementer, you may want to leave the stubby end on, so that it can't pull out of the bottle nipple. I did this for a friend who used a bottle bag system, so her supplementer could lay on its side and not leak. I originally heard of this from Chelle Marmet, about 30 years ago.
The tubing was pulled right up into the nipple, and the bottle could lay across my friend, or next to her. Also, if raising the bottle didn't make the flow fast enough, she could push on the bottom of the bag with a spice bottle or her fingers. Do whatever works for you! I am very much empress see the good system I like very much.. I'm doing research as an aspiring IBCLC and current LLL leader and learning about chest feeding in transgender males and females and stumbled across your blog.
Thanks for all the information! Making an at-chest supplementer is easy and cheap. Note that this post is not medical advice. I am sharing here what I have learned through personal experience. If you are concerned about your baby's health, seek help from a doctor. Using an at-chest at-breast supplementer is a great way to feed your baby if you are unable to produce all of the milk he or she requires.
