Haakaa Supplemental Nursing System (SNS)
The Haakaa Silicone Feeding Tube and Generation 3 Baby Bottle now come together as a convenient Supplemental Feeding Combo for mothers who are experiencing feeding or latching issues with their babies!
Many mums and their babies experience feeding issues – including latching problems, low milk supply, or maybe little ones that need a little extra nourishment or help to learn how to feed. The Silicone Feeding Tube Set helps you to overcome some of these common issues by connecting a bottle of supplemented milk to your breast via a tube, delivering a constant and controllable flow of milk to baby at the breast. Through the use of the Silicone Feeding Tube, both mother and baby can experience the natural physical sensation of breastfeeding, while encouraging mum’s supply and ensuring that baby receives adequate nutrition.
The Haakaa Silicone Baby Bottle is made from 100% food grade silicone, which makes it uniquely soft and safe for your baby. It is easy for little hands to hold, and because the silicone is impact-resistant, you can teach independence without worrying about breakages. It works seamlessly with the Silicone Feeding Tube Set, and is fully compatible with the rest of our silicone bottle attachments too! With a quick twist of the top, you can swap out your baby bottle teat for any of the Haakaa range of optional interchangeable attachments (each sold separately). We have a feeding spoon dispenser for when your baby moves on to solids, a sippy bottle to help your independent toddler transition from a bottle to a cup and a sealing diskto preserve any leftover food or milk after feeding.
This combo pack includes:
1 x Silicone Feeding Tube Set
1 x 250ml Gen. 3 Silicone Baby Bottle with an X-shaped Variable Flow Nipple.
Note: We recommend visiting a breastfeeding or medical specialist if you have any concerns with breastfeeding and feel this product could be of assistance to you and your baby.

Cleaning and Care
Please note: Only parts that come into contact with Breastmilk need to be washed or sterilised.
Clean after each use. Use the included cleaning brush to scrub the inside of the tube before rinsing with hot water. For smoother operation, feed the brush through the tube by the handle and pull through. We strongly recommend cleaning and sterilising these products with any steam sterilising system, or by boiling in water for 2-3 minutes. Do not use any bleach-based agents or sterilising tablets to clean these products. Do not use a UV steriliser to clean these products as it may impact their lifespan.
