It is the SNS from Medela. I am getting the long term use one. It comes with different tubes for varying speeds. Will I still need to be causious of the level?

I think so - but I have more experience with the Lact-Aid. If I recall correctly it's partially gravity-fed so raising the bottle makes the flow faster and lowering it makes it slower. But it comes with a good booklet explaining about positioning and using the different tubes.
Have you started using it yet? How's it going?
Good luck, Darryen!

I am picking it up on Monday. The lady selling them in town works out of her home and although she said I could come by I didn't want to bother her during the Christmas holiday. I am very excited to try it. He took 8oz last night! I think we have a growth spurt coming.

I'm also in FBKS and I second this suggestion. I've never met Joanne myself but know several folks who have greatly benighted from her help. Also, her services are FREE!

You can use an eyedropper or medicine syringe until you get an SNA. Or even a shot glass for cup feeding. See http://www.nbci.ca/index.php?option=...tion&Itemid=17
