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 ›

TLDR Summary:

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.

Long Story:

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.

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!!!
