Calma by Medela is a revolutionary bottle nipple designed for babies who are breastfed to support their natural feeding behavior. With Calma, milk flows when your baby works and creates vacuum to remove the milk, emulating the technique a baby uses during breastfeeding. This enables the feeding behavior learned at the breast to be used with Calma.
Calma allows babies to switch interchangeably between breastfeeding and bottle feeding without disrupting the normal feeding routine. Calma supports a baby's natural sucking pattern, including pauses to swallow and breathe. A baby is able to feed and pause naturally since the nipple design slows down the feed and helps baby stay calm and relaxed during and after feeding.
I also like how the bottle is a compact size — ideal for infant feedings. This small bottle holds 5 ounces, although 8 ounce bottles are also available. The bottle also doesn't leak and the vented nipple even helps prevent gassiness. Because the nipple releases liquid through vacuum suction, the same nipple is adequate throughout all stages of breastfeeding, unlike other bottle styles that may require purchasing nipples with various flow levels.
Calma is used with a BPA-free breastmilk bottle designed to allow babies to maintain their natural feeding behavior and transition from bottle back to breast with ease. See Calma in action in these videos.
Calma is a research-based feeding solution designed exclusively for breastfed babies to support mothers in maintaining their breastfeeding goals. Check out this revolutionary bottle design for yourself!
