Breastfeeding supplementer

A breastfeeding supplementer, or supply line, allows a baby to receive extra milk at the breast and hence removes the need for supplementary feeding with a bottle.

Low milk supply

Low milk supply is a common reason mothers give for stopping breastfeeding prematurely. Low milk supply can be: 1. Primary low milk supply which refers to a mother’s physical inability to make a full milk supply to allow her to breastfeed exclusively. This could be due to retained placental fragments, Sheehan’s syndrome, previous breast surgery or insufficient glandular tissue. 2. Secondary low milk supply results from suboptimal breastfeeding management (eg inappropriate feeding routines that limit the duration or frequency of breastfeeds) or infant causes (eg anatomical facial variations such as tongue-tie or cleft palate), or congenital or neurological disorders affecting tone and sucking such as Down syndrome). 3. Perceived low milk supply refers to when a mother is worried her supply is low regardless of whether a primary or secondary low milk supply (a ‘true’ low milk supply) actually exists or not.
