"An interesting idea"

What first attracted me to this product was that it is called a 'suckle feeder' and not a bottle. All my children have been breastfed, with the eldest two never having a bottle. I thought my baby would transition to water in a cup during the day while I was at work as easy as my other children, but it has not been the case. I was getting concerned that I might have to extend my maternity leave, because she was refusing to drink unless she was being breastfed. However, I have now discovered this feeder!
It is very easy to use. I was afraid that my baby may suddenly get colic using this, but the filters help her swallow less air and she hasn't been windy at all. She has adapted well to drinking and the design works perfectly for breastfed babies. I feel that it compliments, as opposed to replacing the breast. It still encourages the baby work for her feed, rather than traditional bottles where feeding is made much easier for babies. Hence, this often means a decrease in breastfeeding as babies prefer an easy life and will opt for the bottle.
I am hoping as the market for this product grows, then the price will drop too. I just fear at this price, many parents would not pay for such an innovative product that positively supports natural feeding.
I really like this quote from the box "Breastfeeding is best-feeding so why teach our babies a new way to feed?" I feel that these words sum up my feelings about this product .. and it has got my baby drinking and me back to work feeling relaxed that she is happy whilst I am away from her.

Suckle Feeder comments:

 "she fed at her own pace and was not overwhelmed by the feed"

"After watching my husband feed, it seemed really great in that it did allow baby Ella to control the intake, meaning she could pause as she would on my breast. She fed at her own pace and was not overwhelmed by the feed. The way her mouth gaped and her tongue stroked the teat also mimicked breastfeeding. I would definitely recommend it to others.  After feeding Ella wasn't overly gassy either which could be down to the filter in the bottle."

"My son loved it!"

We tried this bottle with expressed breast milk when my son was 4 weeks old. He is exclusively breast fed so the fact that the product claims to mimic breastfeeding appealed to us. He took to it instantly and we found the slow flow setting to be perfect for him. A few weeks later I was able to express enough milk to leave him with my husband for the first time, confident that he would feed well without me! My only complaint is that the bottle is definitely oversized for a baby of his age, though we shall continue to use it as he grows.

Excellent for EBF baby

I am exclusively breastfeeding but we bought this bottle so my husband could do a daily feed from about 6 weeks old. This gives me a well-needed break and allows him to bond with his little bud. We intitallly experimented with a different bottle also designed for breast fed babies (because it came free with the electric breast pump) but our son was taking in a lot of air with it and dribbling milk all over the place. After a lot of research we went for this bottle and we're so glad we did. The suckle action of this bottle is far superior. Baby is still required to latch as he would with the breast but he also controls the flow of the pre-filled teat (be sure to follow the instructions on this) so it means no air is gulped and no milk lost. He has had no problem going back to breast either. Would not hesitate to recommend to other breastfeeding mums. Its size means it should last him through to weaning. Happy baby, happy Daddy and less exhausted Mummy! (Boots customer).

They are amazing bottles..

“They are amazing bottles my baby is nearly 6 months old solely breastfed and I couldn't get her to take a bottle but within 2 days of using your bottle she is drinking like a trooper. They are truly fabulous!!!” Claire, proud mummy of Ella

 
A perfect teat for breastfed babies. Finally! 
 
"Bought one of these today. It's amazing. Works just like a boob. My baby hated the medela calma teat but took to this straight away without spilling a single drop like he normally does with other teats. And because it works just the same as a boob and takes out all the air he didn't need winding afterwards either. No wind to bring up!"  KateB33 (Amazon customer)

 
Love, love, love this bottle!

"As the heading suggests, I love this bottle! Purchased for my second baby who was exclusively breastfed initially before I introduced a bottle (as I did with my first child). Although a little daunting for the parent to use initially as it is unlike conventional bottles, it was very quick to get the hang of. Easy to use, wash and above all my little one took to it happily. It allows him to feed at his own pace, rest when he needs to rest and most importantly prevents over feeding as he must suck to draw down the milk. Highly recommend!" Michelalli
