Visit this blog a user created for lost people like myself, which made us solve the puzzle of this product and saved our baby's sucking.
The product will be confusing for a new user or those who used the starter kit before and this guide explains the concept of the "milk tube" and the "air tube" which is vital to get used to this product.
Our baby has been doing great so far into the 5th week, gaining nicely and having no problems with sleep/pee/poop/drink cycle. Until the lactation consultant warned us that we have been relying too much on the bottle and in a short amount of time our baby's sucking would not be enough to create enough milk (even with pumping with hospital grade pump every 2 hours). He told us we need to get the medela supplemental nursing system.
Before this happened around 3rd week, my wife was given the starter SNS in a lactation class and we tried using it. It was a nightmare to get the baby to latch with it and we stopped using it after my wife burst into tears with frustration.
The starter SNS is great in its simplicity (relatively speaking) and the fact that the membrane allows the air to go back into the milk reservoir, which lets the novice user understand that the baby is getting the milk. If you are able to latch your baby with the tube without issues, you are going to have a relatively easy time with the starter SNS. The problem is the product is advertised as 24 hrs only and in a few times of use we saw reduced amount of milk coming through it as well as deteoriation so I told my wife we need to brave the full Medela SNS.Read more ›

Not only is supplementing challenging enough while breastfeeding, but when using the white fitting this thing leaked formula all over my baby, myself, and my new down comforter. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Tiffany Morey
I tried this system with baby #1 and loathed it. It was so difficult to get the tube and nipple in the baby's mouth simultaneously. Read morePublished 1 month ago by WJ08
Leaks like a sieve. Used once and I was covered in formula. You can't squeeze it at all to stimulate the baby to suck if they fall asleep. You'll be wearing the contents. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Amy H.
If using this start with a newborn. I would also go with the singe one. My son would often knock the second cord off and it would leak.Published 2 months ago by jerry
