Description
 
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. Finger feeding colostrum with a syringe keeps baby's tounge down and allows the peristaltic wave motion of the baby's tounge 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 meconim 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 collostrum 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.
