Medela Supplemental Nursing System

  • Description & Features

The Supplemental Nursing System (SNS) is a feeding tube device to provide babies long-term supplemental feedings at the breast. When a baby is at breast over a period of days or weeks, a hormonal mechanism is triggered that causes milk to be produced.

The SNS can also be used for:

  • Inducing lactation
  • Keeping special-needs babies at the breast
  • Premature babies
  • Weak, ineffective or lazy nursers
  • Failure-to-thrive babies
  • Impaired babies
  • Low-milk supply mothers
  • Relactating mothers
  • A teaching tool to "fingerfeed" babies who have had difficulty latching onto the breast


  • Made without BPA - All parts that come into contact with breastmilk are not made with BPA
  • Ideal for long-term supplemental feedings at the breast
  • Provides assistance to mothers and babies facing special long-term challenges
  • Adjustable flow-rate system - Allows mothers to control the flow of liquid to the infant
  • Color-coded valves with attached tubing
  • Helps mothers to manage different feed rates
  • Adjustable neck strap makes for a more convenient feeding experience for moms
  • Sterile packaging

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product Using the SNS has increased how often my infant will nurse. I started using it every time and now I'm down to only during the day. Sometimes he'll nurse multiple times in the night but I still haven't been using it then. The only problem is that replacement tubes aren't available through and that's really all I need.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be good if not for the leaking After 10 days of using the large tube it started to leak non stop which is very frustrating since you are expecting it to make life easier even considering the cost. It was a good system while worked, unfortunately. Not sure what I am going to do with my baby feeding since other two flows are to slow for her.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Omg received and tested yesterday leaking today I just received this yesterday and used it yesterday. Today after washing and drying all the parts, including the silicone seal, it started to leak as I turned it upside down. Paid a hefty price of $58 for a cheaply made design. Don't buy this. Very disappointed.
