The Silicone Feeding Tube is for mothers who are experiencing feeding or latching issues with their babies!
The Silicone Feeding Tube Set helps you to overcome some of these common issues by connecting a bottle of supplemented milk to your breast via a tube, delivering a constant and controllable flow of milk to baby at the breast. Through the use of the Silicone Feeding Tube, both mother and baby can experience the natural physical sensation of breastfeeding, while encouraging mum’s supply and ensuring that baby receives adequate nutrition.
Features you will appreciate:
100% food grade silicone, BPA, PVC and phthalate-free
How Do I Use It?
Insert both the inlet and outlet tubes into ends of the tube adapter.
Thread the end of the outlet tube through the flow controller.
Push the thick inlet tube down through the X-shaped opening on the Variable Flow Nipple and pull it through until it is long enough to reach the milk in the bottle.
Attach the nipple to the bottle.
Place the end of the thin outlet tube 1-2cm away from your nipple and secure its position with medical tape.
Introduce your baby to your nipple and then place the thin outlet tube gently into their mouth to begin feeding.
Squeeze the Gen. 3 Silicone Baby Bottle body to control the flow of milk.
Increase pressure on the bottle to increase the speed that milk flows or reduce pressure to slow it down.
You can also use the flow controller to manager the speed that milk flows, adjusting to suit your child.
Clean after each use. Use the included cleaning brush to scrub the inside of the tube before rinsing with hot water. For smoother operation, feed the brush through the tube by the handle and pull through.
