We bought a whole set of bottles and steriliser for our son. Once he was just over 2 months we got medium flow as we found him struggling with low flow.
They worked a treat!
The only downside is that they are a bit pricey. I have a bottles that i needed to swap teats but have to buy them gradually.
I bought these teats initially when baby was 3 months as the packaging says 3m+. However they weren't suitable for my baby until past 6 months as he was born small,completely understandably timings are different for him. This isn't a fault of anyone of course, I'm stating this to remind that the 3 months *+* means although 3 months is minimum,some babies May need to have them later or even not at all!
As for price, I found most places sold these at a pretty high cost- however, I found a place that does them at a much more budget-friendly rate! B&m bargains sell them for only £3.99 for a pack of two teats! It still adds up for those who have many bottles, however it's much more affordable that other places.
Practically the test works very well, keeping the flow steady at a baby friendly pace. I've noticed that sometimes the test can suck into the bottle too- Again, this is not a fault, but many people think it is! If the bottle sucks In, either you have put the bottle lid on the bottle too tight, or the airflow section of the teat has not been opened (see teat packaging for what this means. It's meant to be done for ALL new teats).
Another thing to point out is many people have questioned how I know what size the teat is as it isn't labelled. It is labelled, however not very clearly! You can find a number I'm a circle just above the neck of the teat- a photo has been added to show you an example of this.
Overall I can't fault this product at all, it's done us well throughout my baby's development and been our lifeline when breastfeeding didn't work for us. I'd 100% reccomend tommee tippee to anyone and everyone.
We found milk was slightly hard to get out of the teat I feel not washed straight away

The follow on teat from the slow flow closer to nature. Same shape as the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Slow & fast Flow Teats. Suitable from 3 months, anti-colic valve helps milk flow. We found they were hard to clean if the milk had dried. Number on them help you distinguish from the other flow rates.
Moved onto these teats at 2 months when my son changed to a thicker formula and they have been fantastic. The flow is quite slow with the thicker milk but he is taking in a lot less air and his colic is virtually non-existant. Just one of the Tommee Tippee products I use and love!
My son had started to fall asleep when having his bottle with 0+ teat that came with my tommee tippee bottles and was also taking up to 45 mins to finish the bottle so I changed them to 3+ and he is now drinking a bottle in 20 mins or less and isn't falling to sleep during the feed. Love that tommee tippee do different tests so you don't have to buy whole new bottles.
Having spent the first few days using the slow flow teats the midwife suggested we try these due to the length of time it was taking to feed. We swapped over and feeding has gone so much easier since. Winding has also been easier since we changed teats. All in all this product has been great for us.
I really want her to like this teat as we bought the whole range but and we spent 5days in hospital after birth we was given nuk teats on the 6th day I can home ready to use these and she completely collapsed the teat with her suction became really upset. So we tried others that work but would try this again when she got older but it’s still a no good her suction seems to be to strong maybe? So we used MAM, NUK and Avent and there all great for her.
