The Medela Calma is the unique teat for babies who are being breastfed with breastmilk, as it allows them to suck, swallow and breathe, as learned on the breast. Whether you breastfeed or use Calma, the baby has to create a vacuum for breastmilk to flow. As soon as the baby pauses, the flow is stopped, this is also the way with breastfeeding.
Conventional feeding solutions force baby to abandon natural drinking behaviour, as the milk flows by itself. The baby cannot control the flow of milk, and has to alter sucking behaviour, becoming a 'lazy feeder' and reluctant to return to the breast. Calma enables baby to retain learned, natural and healthy drinking behaviour.
Why you'll love the Medela Calma:
- Enables babies to maintain their natural feeding behaviour learned on the breast.
- Babies can drink, breathe and pause regularly.
- Supports an easy transition from the breast to the teat and back.
- One size is sufficient for the entire breastfeeding period, just as in nature.
- The unique feeding solution for your baby - we recommend introducing a teat when breastfeeding is established
- BPA Free
With the Medela Calma babies do not have to change their natural feeding behaviour. Whether you breastfeed or use Calma - the milk only flows when the baby applies vacuum.

Good for first time bottle use Review by Amylynn08

I have always strictly breastfed our babies, but with the birth of our twins realized I was a bit out of my league in the early days. My goal was to eventually work towards exclusively breastfeeding and this bottle top was recommended to me at the store. By six weeks my son and I had worked towards exclusively breastfeeding (like his sister) with little to no nipple confusion, with a great latch! I would highly recommend this bottle nipple to anyone looking for the perfect transition nipple or to use with breastfeeding. (Posted on 11/6/13)
