The only years we have now instead of having to buy new sizes. The only downfall was when my little one first used them it took her a while to figure them out without taking too much back. But it didn't take long.
Size of teat difference between the aad bottles and the closer to nature ones

I chose to change bottle tops when my daughter was prescribed carobel for her feeds. The tops allowed her to get what she wanted by how strong she sucked. I had both the advanced anti colic bottle and the standard closer to nature ones. I found the the aad variflow teats were narrower in design like the standard 1,2,3 sizes where as the closer to nature ones were wider. When we took my daughter off the carobel we didn't need to change teats as they still only allowed the flow of what she sucked. Saved us so much money.
I bought these as my baby was struggling with the regular size one tears but too young for size 2 so we thought we'd try these. The only negative to make people aware of is that the teat end is a lot wider that the standard size 1/2 teats and my baby didn't like this when he was small,it was too big for his mouth.
We decided to use these teats straight away with our 2nd baby as our 1st took to them very well after trialling a few different types. He is breastfed so the vari flow is useful as however hard he sucks, that's how fast the flow is, very much like when breastfeeding. He took to these teats very well as it only took one attempt and he had his whole feed without any complaints. They can be a bit pricey if you need a few but alot of other brands are similar prices. You can however, most of the time, get them on offer so they work out cheaper. I would definitely recommend these for both breastfed and formula fed babies as they get the right amount of milk they want!
We swapped our little one to the Vari Flow teats after he was diagnosed with Reflux and put on the Anti Reflux formula due to the thickness of the milk.
Baby was struggling to feed and we found he was getting fed up half way as it was taking too long.
Swapped to these teats and had no issues since. No spillage like with the fast flow and no falling asleep mid feed! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
For my LO they are just perfect. The milk is not overflowing through them, (we've tried different bottles and teats) very suitable for newborns. They're little bit expensive, but I think it's worth it for a comfortable bottle feeding,
My son hasn't had any problems using these teats and if anything he actually seems less windy afterwards than when he feeds from the breast. He's approaching 3 months now so ill be purchasing the next size up.
I bought these for my first baby due to the teats that came with the starter park were slow flow. These vari flow allow baby to take as much or as little milk as they want. I've had zero problems with them. They are always on offer in local supermarkets and last really well. I've just had my second baby and gave her this teat from the beginning and had no problems whatsoever. Would recommend to every mum
My son has a strong suck so thought these would be ideal when the 0+ teats became too slow for him but these made him finish a bottle in 5 minutes (usually takes 15-20 minutes) and therefore was writhing around after in pain from all the wind that he had. I went to size 2 instead and these have been much better.
These were great with my son! He had bad reflux so he had to have a thickener in his milk! Which meant these where the only tears that worked!
Would recommend to all mums!
Thank you Tommee tippee for doing these!!
A simple teat which fits tommee tippee bottles. The extra hole in the teat helps air flow & milk flow. So they worked well for us. We found they discoloured cloudy as they were used. The number on them helps you pick the correct flow rate.
We started on size one and moved onto two then vari flow but to be honest I would start at vari flow from the beginning next time. They are ideal as baby an take as much or as little as required. It saves
Money from buying all the sizes to just buy one size as they are long lasting and durable. Easy to clean also.
Veri flow (easy for hungry baby's), very reliable on feeding times for different suction
Price a little high and a little messy until baby gets used to the teat

My little girl uses these teats they are very durable and when she is feeling very hungry she can suck hard and get a big gulp of her milk and when she feels like she wants to take it slow she can go slow by not sucking as hard and the flow of the milk will be reduced
Downside is that if you start from newborn it can get messy just persevere with these teats untill your baby gets the hang of the varu flow teat (double bib one plastic one cotton)
These teats were a life saver for us! My baby boy was having 3 oz every 2 hours with the size 1 teats at 3 weeks always wanted more but wore himself out sucking so hard on the size 1s. We changed to variflow and have never looked back since, he's now 6 months and I still love them just as much, we have never had any feeding issues, no trapped wind and he can take what he needs without tiring himself out! Wouldn't use any other than these now!
Not every new baby is the same the starter pack should come with slow and variflow teats As they are expensive to buy and understanding a newborn of first time mum is daunting so having the choice to see what helps would be better.
I started off with mam bottles when my son was first born as he really struggled to get the grasp of eating.
By the time he was a month old he out grew the mam ones so we decided to get these. We tried all different tommee tippee teats but he either sucked too hard or not hard enough.
We finally ended up on these ones and they are perfect for him.
When he is starving hungry he can take really big gulps (he is a really hungry baby) but when he isnt as hungry he can take his time and just drink a little at a time.
He is 5 and a half months old now and still using these teats.
If you baby changeds how hard/soft they suck per feed i would recomend these.
I bought these as my LB struggled with the first stage teats, and was struggling to feed, bought these as they said O +months. Far to big for a new born baby, very messy he ended up drooling half it out when feeding. I went back to them when he was 6 months still a bit messy but a lot better, now 11 months and they are great.
Very large teat. My baby struggled with these and didn’t look comfortable feeding...was very messy and she seemed to spit most of it out. I now only use this teat when I’m giving her water for her constipation
