Q&A: How Does A Nursing Supplementer Work?

What is a nursing supplementer? Why would I need one?

A nursing supplementer is a device that allows your baby to get pumped milk or formula through a thin tube while he breastfeeds. Using one is helpful for moms who have low milk supply, have had a breast reduction, have adopted their babies, or whose babies have certain sucking problems.
