Medela Calma Breast Milk Feeding Nipple

With a flow control valve that requires your little one to create a vacuum to get the milk to flow, the Medela Calma Breast Milk Feeding Nipple doesn't drip, and it eases the transition from the bottle back to the breast by requiring your child to rely on natural breastfeeding patterns. The Calma is great for use with children in all stages of breastfeeding with its universal size and shape. Unique venting helps prevent colic and gassiness, and the BPA-free construction is safe for your baby. The nipple is compatible with most Medela breast milk bottles.

This bottle has been great! With my second born, once she got a taste of a bottle, she didn't want to go back to the breast. So for my third born, I wanted to find a better system. This bottle has been the answer. It does not give that instant gratification of other brands. Still makes the baby work for the milk a little, as in nursing. I am so happy that Medela released this nipple. My ONLY negative is that the top is a little difficult to get snapped on. But a very minor detail that I can overlook. Especially since my son is 7 months and has had no problem switching from breast to bottle...and back!

I have been exclusively breastfeeding and I purchased this item because I will be returning to work. I wanted something that would mimic the breast so my LO could make an easy transition between having a bottle at daycare and breastfeeding at home, and so I wouldn't be getting chewed in the process!

The calma DOES only produce milk when my LO sucked, but it was too much! The milk kept flowing out of her mouth and made it very difficult for her to eat. :(

Taught my son to latch!

Pros

  • Encourages Correct Latch

Cons

  • Can Flow Quickly

Best Uses

  • For Breastfed Babies
  • To Teach Latch

Comments about Medela Calma Breastmilk Feeding Nipple:

My lactation nurse suggested I buy this bottle after having a combination of problems with breastfeeding. Aside from the fact that my milk was not coming in due to a unplanned c-section, my son was not latching correctly because of an asymmetry in his head and jaw from being stuck in the birth canal too long. Breastfeeding was becoming a nightmare and I needed a break to heal. The nurse explained to me that this particular nipple would force my little one to learn a correct latch because milk would not flow if his lips were not sealed around it. By using this bottle in-between feeding sessions, I was allowed to enough time to heal while helping to correct my son's latch issues. We successfully breastfed for his first year! My son did figure out after a while how to draw milk down too quickly from this bottle, but we corrected the problem by pulling the bottle a little more frequently and burping to prevent him from eating too much too quickly. Considering this was the only issue, which no negative pressure bottle can avoid, I am pleased with the results and how I was able to successfully breastfeed because of this product.

      Comments about Medela Calma Breastmilk Feeding Nipple:

      My daughter is breastfed, but I was having to supplement with formula. I had Dr. Brown's bottles, but she was getting confused between the breast and the bottle and would choke. I bought these bottles because the child has to actually latch on to the nipple and suckle the milk like she would with her mother. Also, I went back to work and was not nursing until I picked her up at night-I wanted her to continue to want to nurse. She has done great with them and still loves to nurse from me! The only down side is she was very gassy. My husband and I dealt with her tummy issues until we thought she was ready for a regular bottle. We have since switched back to Dr. Brown's because of her gassiness. I would recommend using these nipples if you're still trying to establish nursing with your baby, but must supplement or pump while at work.

          Comments about Medela Calma Breastmilk Feeding Nipple:

          I would have given up on BF if it weren't for the Medela Calma nipple! My LO was 3 weeks early and Small for Gestation Age - we had so much trouble getting started with breastfeeding we had to start him with bottle feeding breastmilk to get his weight up. It wasn't until we switched exclusively to the Calma nipple that he finally started to latch to the breast. If you're having trouble getting your little one to breastfeed I HIGHLY suggest giving the Calma nipple a try to "train" him/her to work for their milk :-) The only downside to this nipple is the high price tag - but it was worth every penny to me. I ended up buying a second one so that I could rotate (rather than having to take apart and wash after every feeding because there are a lot of pieces to it).

            Comments about Medela Calma Breastmilk Feeding Nipple:

            I would not recommend this nipple to anyone. The nipple does not mold in the shape of a oval while feeding, like a breast does. Therefore, the baby looses a lot of milk through the corners of his/her mouth. This problem does not occur with the standard nipples that come on the bottles. No need to purchase these nipples when the other nipples work great, with no lost milk!

                This nipple works just as it says it will. I am nursing twins and had a difficult time finding a nipple that didn't feed via gravity. Both of my girls choked and had milk pouring out of their mouths with all the other nipples I tried (and I tried 4-5 different brands/styles). This allows the baby to control the flow of milk. I am glad I found this product and can actually take a break from breastfeeding every now and then! It is pricey but well worth the money if your baby has trouble switching back and forth from breast to bottle.

                    I have a Medela PIS and breastmilk storage kit. I bought this product to help slow my little guy down when he was taking breastmilk from a bottle because he could gulp down 4 ounces in 4 minutes with the regular nipples that attach to the storage bottles. We, also, started having latch issues from original bottle nipples. I bought the Calma nipple because it fit onto the bottles I already had and sounded perfect for our problems. I never could get him to take the Calma nipple without putting a little breastmilk on it to get him to latch. He would gag on the nipple and still could empty it in 4 minutes, leaving us with our original problem plus new ones. I ended up returning it.

                            I loved the idea of this nipple and was even willing to pay the outrageous price if it meant lessening nipple confusion. Unfortunately, he is a strong sucker so the milk comes out too quickly. You have to create a vacuum for the milk to flow into the part with the nipple - then the nipple itself has a huge hole. So when he stopped sucking, he would continue to get a large amount of milk, causing him to choke. It was a huge flop. Fortunately, my little guy isn't picky and the cheap, slow flow medela nipples are working well for us. When he stops sucking the milk immediately stops too. :) Medela needs to have at least a fast flow nipple on the end rather than a hole that's open more than 1/4 of an inch. I'm sure my baby isn't the only one who hasn't figured out the cause and effect of heavy sucking yet. :) The only positive I have is that I only bought one to try it out so at least I only wasted $20 and not the $200 worth I'd have purchased to get a full day's worth. It's crazy how expensive it is.
