Calma is the ideal alternative to breastfeeding for mothers who want to give their babies breastmilk.
With 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. Breastfeeding is always best for your baby, but sometimes it is not possible to breastfeed naturally. Calma provides a solution to this.

- 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--it is recommended that you introduce a teat when breastfeeding is established

Why Calma?

Calma’s latest studies with researchers from the University of Western Australia show that creating a vacuum is essential to successfully breastfeed. Babies learn very early on that they have to produce a vacuum for the breastmilk to flow. Their natural way of sucking requires intensive work during breastfeeding!

Calma--the unique breastmilk teat for your baby

For a mother looking for a solution to feed her child breastmilk, Calma is ideal. Calma was developed based on the results of Calma’s studies with the University of Western Australia. That's why 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.

Similar to breastfeeding your baby can

- Drink, pause and breathe in its natural rhythm - Create its individual vacuum through a combination of tongue and jaw movements - Retain its natural way of sucking, which supports an easy transition from breastfeeding to breast milk with Calma and back to breast

Tips for using Calma

It is recommended that you use Calma exclusively from the first bottle feeding and only for breastmilk. You may need a little patience until Calma will be accepted by your baby. It is the first time that your baby comes in contact with an artificial material instead of the familiar breast. Everything is new for your baby and they cannot smell you and your milk as with breastfeeding. To encourage your baby to open their mouth to take Calma, stimulate the lip as you would with breastfeeding.

Handling Calma hygienically

Calma can be assembled in a very hygienic way

- Take the silicon teat - Turn the bottom edge upwards and do not touch the tip and place it on to the top- Flip the edges down - Put the top onto the base

Warming milk

Warm the milk with the multi-lid on, then put Calma on just before feeding.
