The NUK Classic Neck Latex Teat features the special, orthodontic NUK shape in a standard neck size. These teats have been used successfully around the world for over 60 years.
The shape of the teat is unique, designed to mimic mother's nipple during breastfeeding and to optimally fit baby's oral cavity while using the correct tongue muscles and jaw action for suckling. The flexible and stretchy latex teat flattens and mimics the same way mothers nipple changes when inside baby's mouth. Latex is soft and feels like skin - not slippery like Silicone.
The teat also features an antic-colic air system, which allows air to flow into the bottle through a vent, stopping baby swallowing air and helping to prevent colic.
Fits narrow neck size bottles such as Nuk, Medela, Evenflo, Unimom.
* TIP to help your baby adjust to bottle feeding, which is often a difficult and stressful time, we recommend that you boil the teat in milk (cow's milk is fine) for 2-3 minutes before first use. This will help acceptance with baby.
You need to choose the teat size based on the age of your baby (0-6months, or 6 months older), and then choose the teat based on the main liquid type that you are feeding.
Small - suitable for thin liquids such as breast milk or water
Medium - suitable for milk and formula
Large - cross cut feed hole suitable for thicker feed consistencies and hungry babies!
For safety and hygiene purposes replace teat after 1-2 months use. Sterilise using steam, (Milton Tablets, dishwasher and electric sterilisation is not recommended as this can cause material damage). DO NOT leave the teat in water - remove after boiling and dry.
