Why is the Teatle so special?
The Teatle has been developed to fulfil one purpose - to be GENUINELY SIMILAR to a natural breast. You might have heard this claim over and over again to be then disappointed by reality, but it will not happen this time! The Teatle is built with the unique and innovative REALATCH™ technology and it has a soft and pliable texture which makes it the closest design to a natural breast ever made to date. You will need just one simple squeeze to realize how wonderfully soft it is!
Why does all of this matter so much?
It is important because it makes a great deal of difference for your baby and for you. Baby bottle refusal and nipple confusion are not funny topics for a lot of parents. Conventional baby bottles have a much harder texture than a natural breast and they come with a specific shape. Your baby must adjust to that shape to latch on to it, but when this doesn't happen, you are left with a problem if you cannot breastfeed all the time. The Teatle, like a natural breast, is soft enough and specifically designed to allow your baby to find a NATURAL, COMFORTABLE and BESPOKE LATCH. The Teatle will adjust to your baby, not the other way around!
Isn’t this amazing?
Softer & Safer
You might know that baby bottles can harm the development of the mouth if used for prolonged periods. The American Dental Association, a very reputable organization that sets many guidelines and standards in the dental field, recommends transitioning from a bottle to a cup at one year of age. One of the issues of the overuse of bottles is related to the hardness and rigidity of their nipples. The excessive pressure hard nipples create in the mouth can prevent the jaws of your baby to grow properly. Because the Teatle is much softer than any other baby bottle, it will be much more gentle on your baby’s mouth! This was the original idea that pushed our founder, a dentist, to create this new baby bottle. He wanted to create something that would be
softer and safer for your baby’s mouth.
Still stick to the guidelines though, so don't overuse the Teatle too!
Does the Teatle have any other advantages?
Yes! As the Teatle allows you to feed your baby in a NATURAL way, it will encourage breastfeeding alongside bottle-feeding. You might know that sometimes babies do not go back to the breast after being introduced to baby bottles. This happens because breastfeeding and bottle-feeding are vastly different and the baby has to adjust from one to the other in order to use both. By using the Teatle you will be able to switch from breast to bottle and all the way back without problems!
What about the anti-colic system?
The Teatle is equipped with a very effective and innovative anti-colic system. This is what makes the bottle breathe, literally! Give it a look while feeding your baby and you will see for yourself! The anti-colic will allow your baby to feed comfortably and take milk without air.
No gas no fuss, it's as simple as that!
Which flow options are available for the Teatle?
The Teatle comes with 2 flow options.
You can have a natural slow flow option that is suitable for babies from 0 to 3 months and a fast flow option for babies 3+ months. Because every baby is different, it may happen that your little one will be fine with a slow flow teat even if they are older than 3 months. So take this number just as a reference!
To find out if your Teatle has a slow or fast flow nipple look at the inside of the Teat: the number 1 is for the slow flow and the number 2 is for the fast flow.
Sometimes baby bottles are difficult to use or clean. Is the Teatle fiddly?
We have tried to make it as simple as possible! The Teatle is super simple because it's only made up of 3 pieces. You have just to screw the teat on the top of the bottle, the anti-colic system at the bottom and the Teatle will be ready to use. Forget big instruction booklets and dull YouTube videos, feeding your baby should not be rocket science right?
Is the Teatle safe for my baby?
Yes, it is! The well-being of babies is what drives us and we take health and safety very seriously. The Teatle complies with strict quality standards and it's made of non-toxic premium materials (polypropylene and silicone) completely BPA, phthalates and PVC free.
