Flex and Stretch Ripples
Flex and stretch ripples allow the Closer to Nature nipple to mimic the natural flex and movement of mom’s breast.
Soft Silicone Nipple
The soft silicone nipple feels closer to skin and gently elongates and flexes during feeding to mimic a natural breastfeeding action.
Breast Like Shape
The breast like shape of the Closer to Nature nipple allows baby to latch on easily and further supports the transition between bottle and breast.
Super Sensitive Easi-Vent valve
The super sensitive Easi-Vent valve gives superior venting for easy feeding and less risk of baby taking in air.

Where should the Easi-Vent valve be when feeding my baby?
We recommend the valve be at the top, near your baby's nose.
Can I put bottles and nipples in the dishwasher?
Yes, our bottles and nipples are dishwasher safe. We advise you place bottles and nipples on the top shelf. Also, try not to put baby bottles and nipples in the dishwasher with dark colored food as the color from this food can transfer. We also advise that you sterilize the bottles and nipples in a Closer to Nature Sterilizer.
Do tommee tippee bottles contain BPA?
We're pleased to advise that our best-selling, award-winning Closer to Nature bottle range is in indeed BPA free, with all bottles in the range made in top quality polypropylene. This material is light to hold, easy to clean and gives great results – but contains no Bisphenol A.
Can I use Easi-Vent nipples on sensitve tummy/added comfort or anti colic bottles?
We're afraid not. The Closer to Nature easi-vent nipples have an air valve which will prevent the sensitive tummy/added comfort and antic colic bottle system from working the way it should. You should only use our compatible Closer to Nature added comfort or vented nipples with these bottles.
