There's something called a supplemental nursing system. Bonus: oxytocin from actual BREAST feeding. And the child will have proper mouth and jaw development.

Never. It is just a money making marketing ploy trying to tug on the emotions of mothers. I think it's an absolutely ridiculous product.

i wonder who would feed their baby in public with this contraption? would people do it? i wouldn't! i'd rather nurse in the middle of the mall with my shirt completely off than wear that thing!!

"Marina, I might not point but, I'd probably fall down, slapping the floor while laughing. ;)"

I almost fell over laughing at the picture. Had someone else been in the room I would have pointing and laughing hysterically at the screen.

What a joke.

I think I would rather breastfeed in public rather than strap on a...wtf do you call this? My husband would leave me if I asked him to do this!!! LOL No I would not use this product. I might even point and laugh if I see someone doing this..J/K

"Are there not products like this already out there? I'm sure we've debated this before but it was about a company that was making something similar. hmm.."

No, Amie.. I'm pretty sure it was the same thing. The people in the picture even look familiar..

When my babies wanted feeding, whether from breast or bottle they wanted it NOW!!! They weren't going to be happy sitting around waiting for me to strap some device over my body before feeding them.

Er, what's the point? You would hold a baby in almost the same way to bottle feed anyway, give or take a few inches!
I just don't understand, so you're just freeing up one arm?!?!
Definitely just a marketing ploy.

I guess I'm one of those crazy ladies who really wanted to breastfeed and couldn't and does find this appealing. I don't know why. I always wanted to hold my kid there. It wasn't the same with the bottle. I don't know if this would be any better. I don't know if there is really any substitute. Sigh.

I also had this strange thing about not wanting anyone else to feed her because I felt like it was my job. But when you're feeding with a bottle everyone and their uncle wants to feed the baby. I bet there'd be fewer people stealing the baby if they had to strap this thing on! Maybe that's how they should market it.

No lol. I was dissatisfied with the bottle feeding experience but pretty much you hold them in the same position to bottle feed except facing up instead of to the side anyway.

Well, the opening line had me "can't breastfeed?" In that case its the pretty much the next best thing?

And for those dads who can't lactate
> this would work for them too right?

But for me personally - nah.

It seems like a lot of extra work when she could have just continued breastfeeding!
I might use one of those supplemental nutrition systems, or whatever they're called, where the baby gets the milk out of a tube directly beside your nipple, by sucking on your nipple, if I couldn't nurse, but I don't think I'd use this. I don't really see any advantages to it, other than being hands-free for bottle feeding, but geez, by the time you got the thing strapped on, you could be done feeding! Plus, a 10 month old can hold his own bottle!

That has got to be the dumbest thing... well maybe not the dumbest... but very close to the dumbest thing invented for parenting!!!

[deleted account]

I loved reading the comments even more! No, dumb product. Glad it worked for this parent, but no, I wouldn't use it. I happily was able to bottle-feed, bond & cuddle, without the use of a strap-on bottle harness.

I thought so. I understand the convenience side of it but the "bonding" experience they've thrown in there is a crock. It's marketing, trying to pull at your heart strings.

I wouldn't use one.

when I look at the picture of the woman with the baby, it doesn't make my heart melt.



It is possible to re-lactate and to get the baby on the breast again. Her child was only 10 months old and she started creating this thing not long after? Seems like it would be easier to just go back to it?

Yeah, Amie, we've seen this before.
I think it's a total crock of shit. It doesn't even make sense, there's no skin to skin contact which is what makes it more of a bonding experience anyhow.

[deleted account]

Well, it would sure give my nipples a break from a 2 year old that doesn't want to let go. lol

Nope, I wouldn't use it.

I love that she says she loved breast feeding so much she missed it. Now that's a hard sell.
