    My daughter was born early and we were actually advised to buy these by a midwife, their fast flowing test meant she could access the milk easily even though she was really small. Also extreme helpful when a dr prescribed acid reflux formula as the thicker formula didn’t flow through the teats in any of our other bottles

    My breastfed baby struggled taking bottle and after some fussing took it with easaly. And now when she is teething she likes to chew on it and small bottle is perfect for her to hold it.
    Good product

    I had tried my little girl with loads of different teats. The return to work was fast approaching and our options were fast depleting. She ad suffered with her belly as a new born. She had colic. I was trying to give her expressed milk so that her dad could share some of the feeding responsibilities, but it didn't matter what I tried her with, it only seemed to get worse. Then she stopped taking it all together. I bought a 4 pack of NUK bottles. They came with the silicone teat, and she didn't take to it, she didn't like the texture. I don't know about anyone else's breasts, but mine certainly don't feel like a silicone teat. A friend had managed to get her little one on the bottle using the latex version. Having already purchased the bottles, I thought I'd give them a go before passing the bottles on to someone who may actually have a use for them. I ordered them, £3.99 for 2, not bad, and eagerly anticipated their arrival. I was not disappointed. They had to have a really good clean initially to remove the latex taste but after that are just as easy as any other product to clean and sterilise. Baby took to it right away. I could see that the teat had some move in it to mould itself to her mouth. This gives it a more natural feel that silicone. I could also hear the air escaping out of the air lock so was reassured that it wouldn't have such a bad effect on her stomach (I had tried other anti-colic products and didn't feel like they improved anything). I feel that the anti-colic claim is actually true.
    I would not purchase another brand of bottle and will use this brand again and again for any future offspring.

    My baby was premature the plan was to exclusively breastfeed but due to her need medication in a bottle I had no choice but to introduce a bottle early on into our breast feeding journey she took to the teat straight away no issues they came highly recommended by the staff on the neonatal ward. They caused no confusion what so ever and she still latched onto the breast perfectly.

    • Strengths:

      The latex teat feels more like skin so baby takes to it better than silicone

    • Weaknesses:

      Only weakness is because of the shape, it’s annoying to clean but not too bad

    My son suddenly refused to drink from the bottle, I tried every single teat and nothing worked. This was a life saver as it was the only thing he started to slowly take. I think because it’s latex, it feels more like skin and the shape of the teat was more comforting to him.

    My little boy refuses to accept any other teat!
    Born six weeks premature at 2lb 8oz his little mouth couldn't fit a cherry teat. The hospital introduced these to him and he learnt to feed from a bottle really quickly. He is now growing with these teats and currently on the 6m+ teats.
    The only downside is that I couldn't put these in the electric steriliser and they had a funny smell to them after. We changed to cold water sterilising and this fixed the issue.

    My little boy wouldn’t take to a silicon teat at all, i was at my wits end and really didn’t know what I was going to do. It’s so difficult to get latex teats and finding the NUK ones was a big turning point for my little one.

    After exclusively breastfeeding my little girl I decided to start giving her a bottle a day to get her used to it. I thought this would be an easy task but how wrong was I. After trying most leading bottles including ones specific to breastfeeding I was close to giving up. This was when I discovered the Nuk latex teats. She took them straight away and we haven’t looked back since. Would definitely recommend to all mums but most importantly to combination feeding or fussy baby mums.

    These teats have been our saving grace. My must have for new mums combi feeding. My baby goes from breast to bottle like a dream and no longer has colic because of heir anti colic systems. My only criticism is that the flow on medium teats is too fast and made him throw up the whole feed once we changed to small he was perfect

    I got these teats as when my baby was born prematurely, we spent 27 days in the Neonatal unit and he was feeding on the tiny little disposable baby bottles in hospital with the latex NUK teats, I tried him on the silicone ones that had come with my NUK bottles but he hated them and his mouth was so small he really hated it. So I got these, and they are great as they’re really soft, he doesn’t end up with milk pouring out, and you can choose the different hole size. We use small although they say for BM and water we use for formula and they’re fine, however - due to sterilising in milton (because you cannot steam/microwave these) they disintegrate very quickly and I’ve had to replace them monthly, they are super cheap though so it’s not been too much hassle.

    This brand and tear is brilliant my daughter was born a month early and would not take to any other brand she was admitted into hospital as would not feed and we found this test and she just stated to feed straight away so I recommend these for tiny baby’s.

    My son used and I was very happy with it.
    I tried a few before this and he had a lot of colic's, with this one did ease it.
    I liked the shape.

    This teats are the same as the ones we were given in hospital when our little one was having trouble feeding. And also the same teat as the aptamil starter packs you can purchase. When we got home we tried other brands that we’d brought prior to babies arrival, but she wouldn’t take them so bought these and the NUK starter pack, she has a high palette and has no trouble with latching with these teats. They have an anti colic system so baby is not taking in air which seems to work as we’ve had no problems with colic. They are easy to clean (although don’t go in the dishwasher) but the latex does wear out quicker the silicone. Interchangeable with any NUK bottles and several options for teat and flow.

    The teats totally saved me when I could not get my 6 month old to take a bottle and I was having to go back to work. He would occasionally take the Nuk bottles (which was an improvement on all other brands) but more often than not he would reject them.
    I thought I would try the latex teats and hey presto he was hooked! We bought 3 of them and he would take the bottle every time.
    They are much better value for money than some of the other "natural shape" bottles about making it a lot easier to buy a few to have spares.
    The only down side is that you can't wash these teats in the dishwasher or really hto water but its just case of washing in warm water and sterilising which is fine.

    My son had trouble feeding when he was born and these were the teats used and recommended in the hospital. It meant we were able to go home without any feeding issues because he didn’t have to transition to new bottles/ teats.

    I have used this product and my baby like the feel of it and latches on to the teat well. I find that it takes longer for my baby to feed, and he has to work for the milk. He sucks like he is latched on to the breast. It also has an anti colic system which prevents him taking in a lot of air when feeding. I also have used the silicone nuk teats too, which I find faster flowing. I would recommend this product.

    I originally bought tommee yippee but my baby would accept them. My baby was given mum at the hospital and we decided to carry on using them. By baby was 6 weeks premature and feeding was very slow so we bought her medium flow which helped loads. We also sometimes put the teat in her mouth upside down to begin with as the flow is quicker and helps her to wake up for a feed. Sometimes this causes the teat to leak at the top which is a little annoying.
    The teats are soft for baby's mouth which will be very useful for when she starts to teeth
    Would highly recommend, especially for premature babies :)
