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.

  • Calma nipple mimics the natural feeding behavior of breastfeeding children to ease the transition from bottle back to breast
  • Flow control valve requires your little one to create a vacuum to make the milk flow

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 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.

    This product is great. It acts like a nipple. My baby nurses just as well on the breast even using this nipple. A must buy for when you need to use a bottle.

    Best teat! Even there's some cons

    By Anna

    from UAE

    Comments about Medela Calma Breastmilk Feeding Nipple:

    Pros: it's not poring nipple. It's really huge advantage for toddlers who already hold bottle by themselves. My baby and her bed was all over wet when feeding regular bottle. Baby can play or falling asleep when feeding milk. With medela calma teats nothing is poring. Everything: my car, her bed, clothes, stroller are clean! And one more huge pro is all muscles which involved into breastfeeding work same way with calma.

    Some people saying that's it's difficult to clean. I find to clean it even easily than regular bottle. On the first sight it seems to be difficult but I found the way how to do it and for me it's much easier especially to clean nipple. In regular nipples you always try to get into the inner bottom of it and clean there. You always think about that part that's it's not cleaned properly. Honestly speaking It's a headache. I don't have this problem with medela. All it's parts reachable easily.
    3) it perfectly works with formular. I don't understand why it's written on the bottle for breasts milk, because it put me into many hesitations when I was choosing which teat to buy.

    Cons: too narrow jar. I spill out milk powder when put it into the bottle. But it doesn't happen with another bottles which wider. This is the only what disappoints me. But even though I'm giving 5 stars of 5. Because it's healthier for s baby and unique mechanism created which doesn't allow liquid come out! Perfect!

    Comments about Medela Calma Breastmilk Feeding Nipple:

    Ordered this nipple because baby choked using other slow flow nipples. Still having some issues but is better. Nipple does leak when bottle is first turned upside down but once it stops doesn't leak again. Didn't like the packaging because there was a sticky dot used on nipple base and didn't come off easily. Overall works better for us than slow flow nipples.

        Comments about Medela Calma Breastmilk Feeding Nipple:

        This product was suggested to me by my lactation consult with pretty good reviews from other moms, so I didn't mind spending the over priced cost for these nipples. At first they seemed to work well with the switch from breast to bottle but then they started to leak, wasting the milk. I was so upset I brought 4, seeing how all four leaked. The baby would get to much milk even with pace feeding. I would not recommend the Calma. She does just fine on the slow flow nipple. Don't waste your money.

            We were using Avent bottles but they kept leaking so we switched to the Calma with the Medela bottles. No leaks, fewer bottles to wash because we can just feed out of the bottles that I pump into and baby seems to like them!

                  A lactation consultant recommended this nipple to us for our one week old son. He was tongue-tied when he was born and continued to struggle to nurse even after being clipped. We used a bottle with this nipple for his feedings for two days. Afterwards, we tried breastfeeding again and he had no problem latching and sucking. Although he was frustrated by this nipple at first, as it's much harder to use than a regular bottle nipple, I give it credit for eventually teaching him to nurse. We've been breastfeeding exclusively for a week now with no problems.

                  I've tried avent, gumdrop, nuk, breastflow, and today bought the medela calma THE MOST EXPENSIVE NIPPLE EVER. But, it was worth it.
                  She actually latched on and took the nipple. She drank 2.5 ounces of expressed breast milk. I put her on the breast after, and she ate a lil but clearly was not hungry. No nipple confusion either.
                  We initially wanted to do no bottles but I decided to slowly return to work so I wanted to be prepared. We had a hard time transitioning to bottle from breast. This nipple worked like a charm.
                  PLEASE make sure breast feeding is well established before attempting to introduce bottles (if you plan to breast feed still).
                  As a bonus, this nipple attaches to the smaller diameter medela pumping tubes and bottles. I will even use it with my kiinde pumping bags and adapter keeping the milk air free.

                    Thought this nipple would be perfect to use with the medela bottles so that I could feed my baby directly from the bottle that I use with the medela pump. He had a hard time latching on to it even though the description says "switching from bottle to breast has never been easier". turns out my 3 month old prefers the regular medela slow flow nipple better than this expensive one. I will keep trying to use it to see if he'll take this nipple, but I thought the point was to make it easier to switch from breastfeeding to bottle feeding. Maybe he needs more practice with this nipple?

                    Children are unable to get a good seal around the nipple and milk leaks out the sides of their lips

                    Makes a huge mess and wastes breast milk

                    Purchased 3 nipples and all 3 have the same issue

                    This is not just an issue with my children but have heard this same issue with many other mothers in our mommy and me meet up and yoga group
