The Medela Starter Supplemental Nursing System (SNS) is a specialty feeding device to supplement the baby with breast milk or formula at the breast until the mother's milk supply is sufficient. It's a solution a lactation specialist often recommends when a mother's milk supply doesn't meet the baby's needs. The SNS is used to stimulate the mother's breast to increase milk production. This is an ideal solution when a mom desires to keep breastfeeding and would rather stimulate her own supply than go straight to infant formula.
The SNS works by adding breast milk or formula into a collection container that feeds through a tube to a soft teat that's taped down to the breast. The baby latches onto the breast as normal so that the suckling stimulates the breast while the baby gets the supplement and sometimes even direct breast milk simultaneously. This method allows baby to get used to latching on to the breast instead of a bottle nipple as mother's supply comes in.
Using the Medela SNS Nursing Supplementer is also made easy for moms. It comes with 10 specialty feeding devices that are packaged sterile so that it's ready to use. After filling the container with supplement, the mother can clip the container to secure it the bra or shirt to keeps the hands free. The yellow clamp on the tubing allows mom to customize the milk's flow rate. Discard entire system after feeding.
Medela manufactures a selection of specialty feeding devices such as the SpecialNeeds Feeder which is specially designed to accommodate baby feedings when infant has a cleft lip or palate.
