Designed specifically for lactation education, Lactessa is the perfect teaching model to help women learn to breastfeed. Lactessa’s head and soft body are weighted to make her feel like a newborn, and her movable and flexible arms, legs, and head allow realistic demonstration and practice of breastfeeding positions. With a cupped tongue, Latessa’s open, three-dimensional mouth is deep enough to insert a finger to teach suck training with accuracy and feel the hard palate. Lactessa comes with a cloth diaper and is ideal for classroom demonstrations or one-on-one instruction. Approx. 5 lb, 20″ long.
