Chu Chu teats work the same way as a nipple. The milk only flows
out when the baby sucks and latches like on a breast.
The normal breastfeeding pattern is for baby to take the
mother's nipple right up to the areola and suck hard to obtain
milk. With the Chu Chu teat, baby takes the teat right up to the
pseudo areola. The milk hole is in the centre of the teat making
baby suck hard to obtain milk.
Ordinary teats have the hole at the top, causing baby to obtain
milk too easily and then often not returning breastfeeding.
The Chu Chu teat will allow mother to switch between breast and
bottle feeding without too many problems.
Does the price seem expensive for one? It can be used from birth
to weaning stage. Though you may need to allow for wear and
tear depending on how your baby sucks. You don't need to change the
flowrate size as baby gets older (like with other brands of teats)
because the baby controls the flow.
Made from a transparent, medical grade silicone that is heat
