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.

I'm sad that I didn't hear about this until my baby was almost 5 months old. She wouldn't nurse in the beginning and after 4 days I had to give her a bottle of formula because she had lost over 10%; and so the troubles began... I was able to get her to nurse with the use of a nipple shield for awhile. Eventually she got to the point that she only nursed for comfort and wanted the easy way out (a bottle) and refused to nurse. My milk supply dwindled and once again we began supplementing. Desperate to continue breastfeeding and about to give up I found reference to a SNS. It took a few days (I thought it would never work) for both her and I to get the hang of it (a 5 month old grabs and pulls on everything especially little tubes) but she is finally nursing. It has only been two days so no increase in milk supply yet but I am hopeful. She loves breast milk so I only give her breast milk from the SNS, if she wants more than I pump then I give her formula in a bottle. This has also helped with her choosing breast over bottle... breast = yummy, bottle not so much. I tried all 3 sizes of tubing and the fastest flow works best for us with a TON of tape so she doesn't rip it off. I also have to have the bottle of milk covered with my shirt or she just plays with it. It also broke her of her need for the nipple shield, with the SNS she will only nurse without the shield and now she will nurse without the shield even when I don't use the SNS (first feeding of the day). It is a bit of a pain (but worth it to me) and it is definitely an at home kind of thing. I really can't imagine trying to tape the thing on and position it in public which is a downside. If you keep at it and try different things I am sure it will work.
