Medela Calma Bottle 250ml – the unique breastmilk feeding solution for your baby
For a mother looking for a solution to feed her child breastmilk, Medela Calma Bottle 250ml is ideal. Calma was developed based on the results of our studies with the University of Western Australia. That’s why Calma is the unique feeding solution for babies who are being breastfed with breastmilk, as it allows them to suck, swallow and breathe, as learned on the breast.
Whether you breastfeed or use Calma, the baby has to create a vacuum for breastmilk to flow. As soon as the baby pauses, the flow is stopped, this is also the way with breastfeeding.
Our latest studies with researchers from the University of Western Australia show that creating a vacuum is essential to successfully breastfeed. Babies learn very early on that they have to produce a vacuum for the breastmilk to flow. Their natural way of sucking requires intensive work during breastfeeding!
Feeding – Tips and tricks
It’s normal for your baby to be a bit fussy in the beginning when introduced to Calma; it could be the first time your baby comes into contact with something other than its mother’s breast.

Here are some tips and tricks developed with the support of new and experienced mums; they help your baby get used to Calma if it is a bit hesitant at first.
