We ordered this baby bottle because it is the only bottle our son can handle. He has a double cleft palate, and cannot drink from any other bottle or cup. Although it is a long way from Japan to Holland, we received it within 2 weeks, so my guess is that Miho Ueda, who took care of our order, didn't waste any time. We even got a small bag of Japanese tea as a gift, and a handfold origami artwork! So, perfect personal service! And about the bottle itself, our son uses it now for two days and he is very happy with it! Very practical to include two nipples by the way, Miho knows his customers needs!

I have a newborn daughter who has a cleft palate and an underdeveloped jaw. I was feeling very frustrated and helpless with her feedings. Not to mention the sleepless nights of trying to get her to eat. The Enfamil cleft bottle nurser, we received from the hospital worked for her, but it took 45 minutes for her to drink 1.5 ounces. The Haberman Special Needs Bottle also did not work for her. After much research, I came across the Pigeon Bottle. Thanks to the reviews of others, I tried this bottle. It is amazing! It took her only 5 minutes to drink an ounce. Her feeding time has been cut drastically and now she has time for more feedings. The first time she used this bottle she looked satisfied and as a mother her happiness is my happiness. My daughter did not need an assisted bottle after all. This bottle helped her to assist herself. Hopefully my review will help others. Good luck finding the right bottle that will work for your special child.

I really love this bottle. The nipple has a natural soft feel, the bottle is squeezable, and there is an insert in for the nipple so it controls the flow of milk so that your baby doesn't get too much at once. WAY BETTER than those bottles they give you at the hospital. The flow of liquid is steady so that your baby doesn't get tired. I had to order a second bottle... that's how much I like it!

It wasn't exactly what i expected as the picture indicated. the nipples were clear and not light yellow as shown on the website. The size is also smaller than what i currently use and therefore it did not fit properly.

Meet my expectation on feeding bottle for cleft palate baby.
The special nipple are soft and friendly to non-suckling baby compare to Haberman teat.

Took forever to arrive and occasionally I need to pry open the opening. It's very touch and go sometimes but I find that's the case with the pigeon nipples, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't but my daughter lets me know when it's not pulling through the valve and we swap it out with another one and the one that hadn't worked ends up working again eventually. I will say that the pigeon is the only nipple my baby will use, she does not like the haberman so I am glad these were available on amazon so I can have extras as the hospital only sent us home with two. There aren't too many options for cleft lip and palate babies and these have made it so my daughter can suck on her own so I'm thankful for them.

I used with mi daughter who was born with unilateral cleft lip and palate. We started using it when she was 5 months old, after her lip was repaired.
She wean at 21 months. I liked very much the bottle and it looks like a regular bottle. She was comfortable with it and every body was happy using it.
I washed with warm water and soap. The doctor recommend me not to sterilized because the nipple could get softer.
I will recommend it to try to everyone in the same situation. Although , the little one will be the one deciding if this bottle is the one.

I bought this to send with a friend to to China. She is adopting a child in China and while this bottle is made in China, they can't buy them. She is in China as I write this, Sep 11, 2014. I was happy to be able to provide one of the things the orphanage had requested! If you know someone adopting a child in a country like China, this would make a great gift to their orphanage. James 4:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress...

I ordered this bottle as I have a puppy born with a minor cleft palette - so I figured if it works for a human baby then it would work for a puppy - and it does - this would be great for breeders who are not comfortable with tube feeding - my puppy latched on and sucked backed 8cc's and did not choke and had no milk come out of his nose. I love this bottle I purchased a second one to keep on hand.
