SoftCup

The SoftCup is ideal for the short-term feeding babies with sucking difficulties. With its soft, spoon-shaped mouthpiece it is an easy and gentle way to feed. The amount of milk the baby takes can be easily tracked and controlled. It is an excellent alternative to cupfeeding. The Medela SoftCup comes with an 80 ml container with curved bottom.

SoftCup – an easy way to cup-feed

Feeding with the Medela SoftCup is an easy way to cup-feed. Due to the one-way valve membrane between the container and the mouthpiece, the milk flow can easily be regulated by squeezing the chambers of the mouthpiece.

Benefits of the SoftCup

The mouthpiece of the SoftCup is made of soft silicone and allows for gentle cup feeding.

NEW: The device comes with an 80ml container that has a curved bottom to minimise milk loss and graduations to track the amount of milk taken.

Thanks to the one-way valve membrane between the container and the mouthpiece, the milk flow can be regulated easily by squeezing the chambers of the mouthpiece.

The device can be reused after cleaning in accordance with the instructions for use.

 

  • Gentle cup feeding
  • Minimised milk loss thanks to curved bottom
  • Controlled milk flow
  • Reliable tracking of the amount of milk taken

Feeding a special needs baby

There are a number of conditions that may affect a baby's ability to breastfeed. Many conditions may relate to neurological impairment, including central nervous system immaturity, pre and postnatal brain injury, Down’s syndrome, cerebral palsy and hydrocephalus, which are all associated with various feeding problems. In addition, feeding difficulties are observed in many babies born prematurely. Other conditions, such as congenital malformations, may also affect the baby's ability to feed, including cleft lip and/or palate, where the oral cavity is incompletely fused.

 

Signs of feeding complications

Common feeding complications as a result of neurological impairment include:

  • Hypotonia or ‘floppy infant syndrome', which may occur with or without muscle weakness and cause abnormal control of the oropharyngeal structures, resulting in weak or uncoordinated sucking
  • Weak sucking, swallowing and gagging reflexes
  • Lack of appropriate alertness and energy required for feeding
  • Dysphagia, especially in babies with cerebral palsy
  • Excessive hyperextension of the neck and shoulders, compromising tongue positioning and jaw movement
  • Respiratory illness, making breathing and swallowing more difficult
  • Slow weight gain
  • Further risk of breastfeeding complications and developmental delay

Common feeding complications as a result of cleft lip and/or palate include:

  • Babies with cleft-lip and/or palate are often unable to form a seal around the breast. In addition, since the oral cavity is not adequately separated from the nasal cavity during feeding, babies are unable to generate a vacuum to remove milk from the breast or bottle, or they experience significant difficulty with this
  • As a result, these babies experience fatigue during breastfeeding, prolonged breastfeeds, and impaired growth and nutrition
  • The size and location of the baby’s cleft lip and/or palate will influence whether or how they can breastfeed. There is evidence that breastfeeding can begin or recommence after cleft lip and cleft palate surgery

Evaluation of breastfeeding complications

  • Early evaluation of the special needs baby by a multidisciplinary team is required to assess the baby's feeding challenges and decide on an appropriate management strategy
  • Each special needs infant and their likelihood of breastfeeding success should be assessed. If breastfeeding is not possible, or exclusive breastfeeding is not possible, the mum can be supported so that she can achieve a full milk supply for breast milk feeding
    •  
  • Breastfeeding or breast milk feeding should be encouraged due to the health benefits for mum and baby

Management

In conjunction with a comprehensive medical team and advice from a lactation professional, general evidence-based strategies that may be implemented include:

  • Skin-to-skin contact at birth: this has been shown to improve breastfeeding duration and should be encouraged
  • Where feeding at the breast is difficult or impossible or if mum-baby separation exists, regular breast expression should begin early after birth
  • Methods for establishing and maintaining a milk supply:
    • Removing milk early after birth is important. Pumping in the first hour after birth helps to remove more milk than pumping in the first six hours and increases milk production in the subsequent weeks
    • Expressing frequently is also important. Pump-dependent mums who express their milk more than six times a day have greater milk production than mums who pump less frequently. Pump-dependent mums are recommended to pump approximately eight to twelve times per day (24 hours).
    • If the baby has limited ability to suck, the mum will be at risk of low supply, so guidelines for increasing milk supply should be followed
  • A medical professional such as a speech therapist or occupational therapist may be required to help optimise feeding. If the baby is able to breastfeed. Methods that may help with breastfeeding include:
    • Support of chin, cheek and jaw movement may assist in facilitating a stronger sucking pattern if oral motor control is low or sucking is weak or disorganised
    • Modification of positioning and attachment may help breastfeeding. Different positions may help for any baby with cleft lip and/or palate or a special needs infant
  • If partially breastfeeding, the mum will be required to express regularly and supplement breast feeds via an alternative device
  • Supplementation of feeds may be necessary
  • Continual monitoring of nourishment and hydration, including volume, frequency of milk transfer and weight gain while establishing the feeding method is required
