The Medela Calma is designed to offer an innovative approach to feeding. The company promotes the bottle for use with breast milk, although it could also be used with formula. One of the best aspects of this bottle: is the similarity between it and a normal breast. The teat of the bottle mimics that of a human breast, allowing for an easy transition between the breast and the bottle, as well as preventing a phenomena known as nipple confusion.

It is generally suggested that babies are not given anything, such as a bottle or pacifiers, before they are fully used to breastfeeding. If they are exposed to bottles a significant amount during this period, then they will prefer using the bottle to the breast, and it can be difficult to get the baby back to breastfeeding. This confusion comes about because the human nipple is very different than the teat of a bottle. When a baby breastfeeds, he must actively suck to get the milk, and the breast is much further back in his mouth, which prevents the gums from getting store. However, with standard bottles, the baby does not need to suck in the same manner, as the milk is brought to him through gravity. While a baby can stop the flow of milk during breastfeeding, he cannot during bottle-feeding, and thus there is no way to pause for rest. Additionally, the baby can apply the lessons that he learnt from bottle-feeding to breastfeeding, and hurt the mother in the process.

The Medela Calma aims to get around this, by having the bottle being similar to the human nipple, both in feel and in function. Babies feeding from the Medela Calma bottle do so using the same sucking behavior that is used during normal breastfeeding, rather than what is generally associated with bottle-feeding. Consequently, it is easy to switch the baby from one to the other seamlessly.

The Medela Calma feeding bottle itself is sold as a single 150 ml bottle, although bottle replacement caps are also available. Medela does caution buyers that it is important to first get breastfeeding well established, before introducing the feeding bottle, as some confusion is still possible. Notwithstanding, the use of the Medela Calma bottle can significantly reduce the confusion between the nipple and the bottle, and also prevent pain to the mother, which can occur as a consequence of alternating breastfeeding with other bottles.
