Silicone Feeding Tube Set
Note: This product works best with a Haakaa Gen. 3 250ml Silicone Baby Bottle using an X-shaped variable flow teat.
If you and your baby experience feeding issues – including latching problems, low milk supply, or maybe little ones that need a little extra nourishment or help to learn how to feed – then the Silicone Feeding Tube Set could be of assistance to you. It helps you to overcome some of these common issues by connecting a bottle of supplemented milk to your breast via a tube, delivering a constant and controllable flow of milk to baby at the breast. Through the use of the Silicone Feeding Tube, both mother and baby can experience the natural physical sensation of breastfeeding, while encouraging mum’s supply and ensuring that baby receives adequate nutrition.
The flow of milk can be carefully controlled by adjusting the strength of your grip on the Gen. 3 Baby Bottle (sold separately), or by using the flow controller for a more consistent rate. Our Silicone Feeding Tube works seamlessly with our Haakaa Gen. 3 Silicone Baby Bottles and X-Shaped Variable Flow Teats (sold separately) but can also be used with any other baby bottle equipped with an X-shaped variable flow nipple. Simply place the bottle in an elevated position higher than the end of the outlet tube to start the flow of milk.

Note: We recommend visiting a breastfeeding or medical specialist if you have any concerns with breastfeeding and feel this product could be of assistance to you and your baby.
It was a good idea to supplement breastfeeding with some tubes. But the tubes cannot be completely cleaned. Even with boiling water. Milk is stuck in between no matter how I try to clean it. This is hazardous to the health of an infant and might contribute to a stomach virus. Such a waste of money.
Hey Caroline, Thank you so much for your review and feedback. As I have advised before to people experiencing the same cleaning issue with the small tube, you can run the little tub under warm water after every use or you can soak it in hot, soapy water. If you find that there is still milk build up in the tube and you have a silicone bottle that you use - you can set up all the tubing to the bottle, add warm soap water and from there use the bottle to pump warm soapy water through to clear the tube. Be sure to sterilize it again after this cleaning process and before use. I hope this has helped.
Really impressed by the feeding tube. Easy to use, bit of a pain to clean with the cleaning pipe only fitting the larger tube Great alternative to topping up with formula in a bottle
The smaller tube can't be cleaned. as the brush does not fit it
Hey TG, We really appreciate your review and feedback thank you. You can run the little tub under warm water after every use or you can soak it in hot, soapy water.

I didn't like it, as the tubing cannot be cleaned
Hi there, Thank you for your feedback and review. The best way to clean the tubes is connect it back up to your baby bottle once that has been sterilized, add in clean hot water and feed it through the tubes until clean to rinse out any excess milk. Use the cleaning brush to scrub the inside of the tube (the bigger tube) and then you can sterilise in boiling water for 2-3 minutes.
