MCHENRY, Ill. — A product exclusively designed for breast-fed babies has made its U.S. debut.
Medela said that its product Calma — a nipple used with a BPA-free breastmilk bottle designed to help babies to maintain their natural feeding behavior and transition from bottle back to breast — has been available in Europe and Canada since 2010. Calma is a part of Medela's complete breastfeeding support system of pump, store and feed products. Calma's one size/shape nipple is used for all stages of breastmilk feeding and also helps to reduce gassiness, the company said.
“Medela is always working to find new solutions for moms and babies by investing in research-based breast-feeding innovations,” Medela president Carolin Archibald said. “Calma is the latest advancement in breast-feeding science that is the result of many years of research and development with leading lactation consultants.”
