The Finger Feeder enables small volumes of liquid to be offered to the baby. The delivery of colostrum, human milk or supplements can be carefully controlled. The soft silicone material of the device offers a gentle feeding experience.
Finger feeding appears to be supportive of breastfeeding rates in the hospital. The Finger Feeder is available for hospitals only.
The caregiver offers the Finger Feeder by attaching it to a syringe, placing a finger in the baby’s mouth, then sliding the FingerFeeder along their finger and into the baby’s mouth. When the caregiver feels the baby attempting to suck and create a vacuum on their finger, they depress the syringe and deliver some liquid. In this way the caregiver can reinforce the baby’s natural sucking reflexes.
With the Finger Feeder it is possible to feed your baby small amounts of breastmilk and medication during the hospital stay when attached to a syringe.
The Finger Feeder is made from soft silicone which does not damage the baby’s mouth. By suckling on the finger during feeding with the FingerFeeder, the baby can satisfy their natural suckling needs and allow them to settle.
The Finger Feeder is also suitable for babies who are unwilling to feed at the breast. The FingerFeeder still helps them to learn proper suckling behaviour.
