Plastic material is contained in the hopper located in back cabinet and extending into the main cabinet. Hopper must be filled through locked door on right side of back cabinet. Bottom of hopper is a chain-driven auger, controlled by a float-switch in the pot of molten plastic, and feeding material directly into the pot.

The key to successful breast-feeding is a good latch. Signs that confirm a good latch include: tongue is seen when bottom lip is pulled down, ears wiggle, cheeks are rounded, you do not hear clicking or smacking noises, chin is touching your breast, you can hear swallowing, the feeding ends with signs of satiety/satisfaction. These signs include: “falls” off the breast, open hands, and/or falls asleep.
