The Dr. Brown's Specialty Feeding System is a unique bottle/nipple/valve system designed specifically will be beneficial for infants and bottle-fed children identified with severe to profound difficulty in efficiently expressing a fluid bolus during sucking. Infants with the following conditions - cleft lip/palate, oro-neuromotor dysfunctions, congenital heart disease, common or rare syndromic sequences and/or craniofacial anomalies will demonstrate strong outcomes while using the Dr. Brown's Specialty Feeding System. The unidirectional flow valve known as the “Infant-Paced Feeding Valve" is inserted into the silicone nipple at the nipple base and placed into the collar. Once full assembly of the Dr. Brown's Specialty Feeding System is complete this system allows the infant to use their own tongue and jaw movements during sucking to adequately express and deliver a fluid bolus into their intra-oral space for safe and efficient swallowing. The feeding becomes “infant-directed" and allows the infant to feed safely, efficiently and successfully. The Dr. Brown's Natural Flow bottle is fully vented to create a positive-pressure flow for vacuum-free feeding. As baby feeds, fluid enters the infant's mouth and air is channeled back from the infant through the nipple and the vent system bypassing the breast milk or formula during feeding. This system prevents the negative effects of a vacuum, allowing babies to feed more comfortably and eliminating discomfort from ingesting air, thereby reducing the symptoms of colic, spit-up, burping and gas.

Dr. Brown's Natural Flow® Specialty Feeding System Starter Kit.

Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System includes the infant-paced feeding valve: 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 designed to assist infants unable to generate a strong enough suck to drink from a bottle, giving them the ability to compress the nipple and feed themselves.

The Dr. Brown’s® Infant Paced Feeding Valve [blue one-way valve in the nipple] can be 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, this nipple/valve combination assists infants in feeding themselves at their own pace.

Benefits of the Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System: Consistent and reliable nipple flow rate.

More typical placement of the bolus vs. being manually expressed into the oropharynx.

Requires minimal assembly.

Helps decrease gassiness/air intake and burping with non-squeeze method.

Exhibits the essential qualities of Dr. Brown’s Natural Flow® bottle by assisting with digestion and preserving vitamins A, C, and E. Exhibits a typical feeding bottle design.

Easy to clean – dishwasher, sanitizing, autoclave, safe.

Fully reusable system.

BPA free.

The Dr. Brown's Natural Flow® bottle is fully vented to create a positive-pressure flow for vacuum-free feeding.

As baby feeds, fluid enters the infant's mouth and air is channeled back from the infant through the nipple and the vent system bypassing the breastmilk or formula during feeding.

This system prevents the negative effects of a vacuum, allowing babies to feed more comfortably and eliminating discomfort from ingesting air, thereby reducing the symptoms of colic, spit-up, burping and gas.

Technical notes: Note: The specialty feeding system will not function as intended without the insert, reservoir and infant-paced feeding valve.

The Dr. Brown’s® Specialty Feeding System is composed of either a 4 oz/120 ml or an 8 oz/250 ml bottle system with the internal vent system; a silicone level 1 -4 flow rate nipple and the infant-paced feeding valve.

Nipple flow rates are available for the slowest infant feeder to infants who can tolerate faster levels.

All levels of Dr. Brown’s® nipple (Ultra-Preemie™, P, and level 1-4) can be used with this bottle system.

The nipple level used for the infant depends on the amount of liquid the infant is able to tolerate.

Slower flow feeding would require a slower flow nipple.

Most full term infants can tolerate the level 1 nipple with the specialty feeding system and graduate to the faster nipple levels depending on their cues for needing a faster flow.

This bottle system is not a disposable system.

The whole bottle system, nipple and valve can be boiled prior to first use and regularly cleaned with hot soapy water; in the top rack of the dishwasher; with the microwave steam sterilizer bags; electric sterilizer or microwave steam sterilizer.

The full bottle system and nipples are BPA and latex free.

Complies with EN 14350.
