Sumatran Tiger Cub Update: Supplemental Feeding

A baby’s arrival typically begets sleepless nights, round-the-clock bottle feedings and the proverbial village needed to successfully raise a helpless infant to independence. For Great Cats keepers at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, who recently celebrated the birth of a Sumatran tiger cub July 11, those adages are all too familiar.

Animal care staff hope that any mammal born at the Zoo receives the care required from mom. Sometimes, however, that is not the case, and keepers must step in to assist. While the now 6-week-old male cub is still learning how to be a tiger from his 8-year-old mother Damai, the Great Cats team has been providing support through supplemental feeding since Aug. 2. When he was just 19 days old, keepers noticed that he was losing weight when he should have been steadily gaining. In addition, Damai displayed behaviors that concerned the keepers whenever the cub tried to nurse.  

“Her behavior tipped us off that she was having either some pain or some difficulty nursing,” said Craig Saffoe, curator of Great Cats. “When he was positioned near her head or elsewhere in the enclosure, she would groom him and play as normal. But, as soon as he moved towards her belly, she would vocalize aggressively and push him away with her hind feet. This started out as intermittent behavior, but in the following days it became more frequent and more intense.”

Has anyone used a Supplemental Nursing System?

I ordered a Medela Supplemental nursing system today. My daughter isn't gaining weight, but also will not take a bottle.

For those who have used them, how was your experience? Are they easy to use? Any tips?


I think they are a pain and like Mystic said, counterproductive for the most part. I would get in touch with a lactation consultant. You need to make sure that your baby has the best latch possible, try different positions, try massaging your breast from


I've heard Lact-aid is easier than the medela one.

Honestly I've only helped one woman use one, her baby wasn't gaining "enough". Then it got to the point that she was giving the baby more breastmilk in the supplementer each

Has anyone used a Medela Supplemental Nursing System?

I have a 3 month old daughter who is exclusively breastfed but has slow weight gain and refuses to take the bottle. I've tried many different teats and bottles but she hates the sight of them.
