Calma: 夢想成真

研究明確表明,母乳餵養時,嬰兒可以維持口腔負壓、保持含接姿勢並正常呼吸,因此可保持平靜安定。為此,美德樂研發了Calma(卡瑪親餵模擬奶嘴),一種基於嬰兒自然吸吮行為的哺餵設備。

Calma 集成了負壓控制閥,這意味著嬰兒需要形成口腔負壓並使用與哺乳相似的舌頭動作,才能吸出乳汁。

在Calma(卡瑪)研發期間,仍是研究先行,並發表了三篇同行評審的學術期刊文章: 其中兩篇是由西澳洲大學Hartmann人類泌乳學研究小組(Geddes et al. 2011 ,Sakalidis et al . 2012 )撰寫,第三篇由東京昭和大學Mizuno 博士撰寫(Segami et al. 2013 )。

對寶寶的益處

這項比較了哺乳和親餵模擬奶嘴的研究中,發現是兩種哺餵方法在一下結果上有相似性:

 

  • 舌運動、乳頭位置以及口腔負壓引起乳汁排空相似

 

  • 吸吮、吞嚥、呼吸和停頓的協調相似

 

  • 在乳汁流出速率以及哺餵時間相似

 

  • 嘴巴張開角度(含接)以及下顎和喉嚨運動相似

 

  • 心率和氧飽和度確定的生理穩定性相似

研究摘要

Tongue movement and intra-oral vacuum of term infants during breastfeeding and feeding from an experimental teat that released milk under vacuum only(英语)

Recent literature supports the theory that vacuum is integral to the removal of milk from the breast rather than peristaltic compression of the breast. ...

Oxygen saturation and suck-swallow-breathe coordination of term infants during breastfeeding and feeding from a teat releasing milk only with vacuum(英语)

Vacuum is an important factor in milk removal from the breast, yet compression is the predominant component of milk removal from bottle teats. Since bottle-feeding ...
