The Dr. Browns Specialty Feeding System is a unique bottle/nipple/valve system designed specifically to assist in the management and treatment of complicated oral feeding issues. This bottle system will be beneficial for infants and bottle-fed children identified with severe to profound difficulty in efficiently expressing a fluid bolus during sucking. Infants with the following conditions cleft lip/palate, oro-neuromotor dysfunctions, congenital heart disease, common or rare syndromic sequences and/or craniofacial anomalies will demonstrate strong outcomes while using the Dr. Browns Specialty Feeding System. The unidirectional flow valve known as the Infant-Paced Feeding Valve is inserted into the silicone nipple at the nipple base and placed into the collar. Once full assembly of the Dr. Browns Specialty Feeding System is complete this system allows the infant to use their own tongue and jaw movements during sucking to adequately express and deliver a fluid bolus into their intra-oral space for safe and efficient swallowing. Medical professionals, parents/caregivers are not required for guiding the infants feeding through continuous squeezing or manipulating of the bottle to dispense a specific amount of liquid into the infants mouth.
