Calma, the New Breast Milk Bottle that Mimics Your Baby’s Natural Breastfeeding Behavior

January 17, 2012

We are thrilled to announce that Calma is now available in the U.S. Calma was designed by Medela and a team of researchers at University of Western Australia. Together we created a breast milk bottle that mimics the natural sucking patterns of a breastfeeding infant.

Why Calma?

Calma was designed for those times when you can’t be with your baby or you wish to share the feeding experience with others.  It is a unique solution that helps a breastfeeding mother reach her breastfeeding goals and keep the connection to her baby.

Benefits of Calma:

  • Calma mimics your baby’s natural feeding behavior so your baby can relax, pause and breathe, similar to breastfeeding.
  • Calma’s flow control valve allows your baby to control the milk flow.
  • Calma doesn’t leak, and its vented nipple helps reduce gassiness.
  • Calma helps your baby maintain a natural feeding behavior, supporting an easy transition from bottle to breast.
  • With Calma, breast milk only flows when baby creates a vacuum.
  • Calma’s one size/shape nipple is designed for all stages of breastfeeding. Babies learn to regulate Calma’s milk flow as they grow, similar to breastfeeding.
  • The Calma nipple is compatible with all Medela breast milk bottles.
  • Switching from bottle to breast has never been easier.
  • Medela breast milk bottles and all of our products that come into contact with breast milk are and always have been 100% BPA-free

Interested in trying Calma? It is now available to purchase online through juvenile specialty stores and hospital accounts.

    • Hi Tosha – Calma is available through select Medela hospital accounts and juvenile specialty stores at the moment, as well as online.

    • Hi Siuhui – You only need to replace the nipple if it’s damaged. If you ever have problems the Calma nipple is sold separately.
