Our baby would get extremely frustrated when we tried to feed her using the SNS.

If you have the patience it's a good product, but I won't kidd you ... it's a lot of work.

It hangs down too long which makes it harder to get the tubes positioned just right.

This product is widely reviewed, so I will try not to completely repeat what others have said. I have unexplained low supply, but desperately wanted to establish a breastfeeding relationship with our second little guy, after being unsuccessful with our first. There are two *commercial at-breast supplementers available for helping Moms do this when they do not make enough milk to sustain their babies: the medela SNS and the Lact-Aid. I began with the SNS and while my experience was not bad, I wasn't a huge fan of this somewhat large, plastic bottle hanging from my neck, against my skin, and sometimes bopping my son in the head if I tried to move in certain ways while nursing. After 2-3 weeks with the SNS (every nursing, 8-11 nursings a day), I decided to try the lact-aid after reading about it and how it is supposed to encourage a nutritive suckling vs. just suction to accomplish the goal of milk transfer. In my case, all it took was one nursing with the lact-aid and our SNS has been shelved since then. I will keep it undoubtedly as a back-up, but I have no desire to use it.Read more ›

This product may be right for you if like me, you tried keeping up with pumping and caring for your newborn on your own while your spouse had to return to work and your family had to go home. Rather than stress and tire yourself out pumping and washing and storing, try this SNS. I had been pumping and washing and storing and it ran me down so that my milk supply was on the decline. My baby had been introduced to a bottle at about 2 weeks because she was sleepy at the breat do to being small (6 lbs 4 oz) at birth. Her ped said to bottle feed or they would have her hospitalized. (THIS WAS ALL AFTER HAVING BEEN TOLD SHE HAD A PERFECT LATCH AT THE HOSPITAL) I wish I had had the courage to ask for this then and she never would have had a bottle at all. Oh well, we all learn. :) The bottle created a flow problem and she would get fussy at the breast waiting for the let down. Causing her to suckle poorly, further reducing the milk supply. NOW - with the SNS we have restored a high milk supply and she stays awake at the breast. MOST IMPORTANTLY - our feeding time is RELAXED AND ENJOYABLE for both of us. She has always preferred breast milk so I am glad that we were able to try this and have some success. Be aware, you may feel frustrated with this at first as it can be cumbersome, but don't give up, it will help in the long run. I find it best to wear under my shirt and have the tubes positioned correctly and secured before picking her up. Babies are not born with patience so you want to be ready when they are. GOOD LUCK!!!

I am breastfeeding after a breast reduction surgery about 14 years ago. I have been using the SNS since my little girl's first week and now I am only using it to supplement 2-3 feedings daily. I never would have increased my milk supply without the SNS because it allowed me to supplement while still getting stimulation at the breast. It is tedious and a lot of work to use the SNS, but for me it has been well worth the work. My little Emily is now 14 weeks old and I'm hoping that eventually we won't have to use the SNS at all.

My wife has been using this to supplement our premature baby, and it is a nightmare. Gas exchange ranges from horrible to non-existent, we will unclamp one tube to let air into the bottle while he feeds off of the other, but often that isn't even adequate. The lanyard seemed like a great idea but sucks in practice in my experience. He latches fine with it, and we have not broken any tubes which seems to be one of the chief complaints about this system, so that's fine, but what good is that if my baby can't feed from it? On a side-note, the Starter SNS we received in the hospital worked great, with the only downside being that it is only supposed to be used for 24 hours. I'm contemplating trying to dig one of them out of the trash, because even garbage-sodden and expired it's better than this piece of crap.

Verified Purchase
I was given bad advice in the hospital and given a nipple shield that reduced stimulation so much that I never built a full supply of milk. I had to supplement, pump, and to add insult to injury..my son refused the breast entirely if it did not have a shield on it. He loves silicone and will take any bottle over the breast any day of the week. He has an upper lip tie that medical professionals have denied exists and not given me help for (to have it snipped) so he has trouble opening his mouth properly to latch.

I bought this 1.) to supplement him at the breast and 2.) to possibly trick him into staying latched without the shield by giving him an instant "reward" of milk. At first I slipped the tube under the shield. Then one random sleepy evening he didn't scream when flesh instead of silicone touched his lips, so I got him to latch - slowly, badly, as he had never latched without a shield before. But it worked! My husband gave the SNS bottle a few gentle squeezes at the start of the feed to entice our son into staying latched,and it worked! We still have issues, but at least now he will try to latch without the shield (with or without the SNS) because he knows he can get milk that way.

It is tricky to put together but worth it compared to the other non-Medela SNS on the market. It WILL NOT leak if assembled correctly. You must make sure that the bumps in the silicone disc that holds the 2 tubes are slipped into the grooves of the plastic disc perfectly - which is NOT hard but is easy to overlook. If the bumps do not align, it will break the seal and it will leak from the cap when overturned. I have always used the slowest flow tubes..the others are pretty fast.
