This 5ml syringe is a great way to feed colostrum for the baby who does not yet latch well. At birth, your baby's stomach is the size of a cherry or about 5ml. (5ml aka 5cc = 1/6 oz) Finger feeding colostrum with a syringe keeps baby's tongue down and allows the peristaltic wave motion of the baby's tongue to function naturally as it would on the breast and feeding colostrum helps a newborn gain energy for future feeds. Colostrum is your baby's first immunization and contains 70% white blood cells that defend against infection compared to 10% in mature breastmilk. Colostrum also has a laxative effect helping a newborn pass meconium and helps prevent jaundice and low blood sugar.

Using a bottle prior to 6-8 weeks is not recommended for supplementing babies due to nipple confusion. 5cc/5ml size sterile syringes are perfect for colostrum as 5ml is equivalent to one teaspoon. Note: This syringe can also be used for colostrum collection with the Primo-Lacto system (sold separately) or for dispensing medicine. This syringe is NOT for use with the Lactation Aid tubing.

5 of 5 Colostum Syringe with Cap - 4 Pack October 30, 2020
Reviewer: Malaysha Huston from Toledo, OH United States  
I was very happy with the product. I feel it definitely helped with the teaser taste for my son so I don't have to worry about nipple confusion from a teaser bottle. I also liked that they come with caps as well.
