NEW Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System

The Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System resembles a typical feeding system design.

The Dr. Brown’s® Infant Paced Feeding Valve is inserted into any level Dr. Brown’s® standard silicone nipple to create a “compression” nipple and when used in combination with the Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow® bottle system, assists the infant in self-regulation during oral feedings.

Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System

Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System was designed in collaboration with medical professionals seeking an oral feeding solution for infants identified with complex feeding challenges such as those often observed in infants with cleft lip and palate, ankyloglossia, high-arched palate, oro-neuromotor dysfunction, common or rare syndromic sequences and/or craniofacial anomalies.

The Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System is an oral feeding solution that allows an infant to express a bolus with lingual movements during sucking attempts without requiring a manual bolus expression from a caregiver. The Dr. Brown’s® Infant Paced Feeding Valve is inserted into any level Dr. Brown’s® standard silicone nipple to create a “compression” nipple and when used in combination with the Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow® bottle system, assists the infant in self-regulation during oral feedings.

Important – Consult your health care provider before using the Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System to confirm this bottle system is recommended for your child’s feeding challenge.

Assembly and Feeding Instructions

NOTE: The Specialty Feeding System WILL NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE INTERNAL VENT SYSTEM (INSERT AND RESERVOIR), INFANT-PACED FEEDING VALVE AND Dr. Brown’s SILICONE NIPPLES.

TIPS: If the Specialty Feeding System is leaking: 1) the collar may be either too tight or too loose; or 2) the insert and reservoir may not be properly assembled. It is not recommended to mix formula in the bottle as the shaking may cause the internal vent system to separate and the bottle to leak. Use only Dr. Brown’s nipples specifically for the Specialty Feeding System – nipples included with bottles or replacement nipple pack.
