    They are still cheaper than Haberman feeders. Count your blessing Amazon has them for a pretty good price.

    FWIW - I tried the Calma with DD last week and she chugged 3 ounces in about 2 minutes. Granted, I have a fast flow as well so her normal feeding time at the breast is really only 4 or 5-ish minutes. But the Calma seemed too fast! She did well with it, though, no sputtering or choking. Also tried the Comotomo and she did OK - almost a little too slow. I tried the regular Medela nipples that come with the PIS and she's doing well with those - slower than the Calma, but seems to produce lots of bubbles. I might try Avent with slow flow nipples, too, as i understand I can get an adapter to attach to my PIS for them...

    I have heard that from several people, actually.
