Your guide to teats

Let's talk teats...

Whether you’re making the switch from breastfeeding, or have been bottle feeding for a while, it's important to check that the teats you’re using are the right ones for your baby and thier bottle, and that they’re in tip top condition.

Did you know?

We recommend changing your bottle teats every two months. And you should change them immediately if they're damaged, weak or have been bitten by tiny teeth.

As your baby grows, they’ll be able to feed more. So just as you use bigger bottles to hold more milk, you may also need to change your teats to provide a faster flow. 

Does your little one?

Take longer than 20 minutes to finish a feed?

Fall asleep during a feed?

Tug at the teat while feeding?

These are all signs that your baby is ready to move onto a teat with a faster flow.


Flow Rates

We offer teats with a range of flow rates to suit babies from newborns to 6 months plus. Whether your little one takes their feed slowly or gulps it down quickly, there’s a teat that’s right for them.


Remember that every baby is different and develops at their own rate so age indications on our teats are just a guide. Your baby may be ready sooner or later.


How do I know what teats I've got?

When you have so much baby stuff around, it can be hard to remember what bits go together.

Our Closer To Nature and Advanced Anti-colic bottles use different style teats. And all our teats are marked to show their flow rate.
