Additional teats of various sizes sold separately allow mothers to simply swap to their choice of teats (extra slow/slow/medium/fast/thick feed) for baby’s perfect feed as time goes by. Simply assemble the teat into the collar and instantly becomes a feeding lid for baby.
Hegen thick feed teats allow for an extra fast flow and is suitable for semi-solids, thicker feed (e.g. milk with added cereal or rice powder). Hegen's teats are designed to encourage seamless transition from breast to bottle feeding, minimising nipple confusion for your baby. Our velvety soft elliptical shaped teat closely mimics a mother's lactating breast while the off-centre teat design promotes upright feeding; similar to a position in which babies are nursed to reduce the risk of milk back-flow and the resulting mid-ear complication and colic. The built-in anti-colic air vent reduces unwanted air intake and prevents bubbling of milk, saving precious nutrients from oxidation.
*Hegen Teats are marked with "0/1/2/3/Y" embossing to indicate extra slow flow/slow flow/medium flow/fast flow/thick feed respectively.
