Based on over 50 years of research into infant feeding behaviour, this teat has been developed to promote the natural sucking style of babies which involves: latching-on, peristaltic tongue movement and swallowing. The peristaltic movement, which gives the name to the teat, is a smooth wave-like motion of the baby’s tongue, compressing the mother’s nipple to extract milk. With a wide base, the NaturalWaveTM teat encourages a wider latch-on, similar to the baby’s natural latch. Super soft and flexible for optimal compression, this 100% silicone teat allows baby to employ the natural sucking rhythm.
As recommended by health professionals, the NaturalWaveTM teat has a gradual slope for improved suction, while the teat’s structure is strengthened with innovative inner vertical ridges to make it collapse resistant so baby can enjoy a comfortable feed. For peace of mind, AVSTM Air Ventilation System reduces intake of air, a potential cause of colic. To meet baby’s changing needs, the one piece, hassle-free NaturalWaveTM teats are available in slow, medium and fast flows.
