Your guide to nipples

Whether you’re making the switch from breastfeeding, or have been bottle feeding for a while it's important to check that the nipples you’re using are the right ones for your baby and bottle and that they’re in tip top condition.

Did you know?

We recommend changing your bottle nipples every two months. And you should change them immediately if they're damaged, weak or have been bitten by tiny teeth.

How often do I have to change nipples

As your baby grows, they’ll be able to feed more. So just as you use bigger bottles to hold more milk, you may also need to change your nipples to provide a faster flow. 

What are the signs that my child needs to change flow rates.

Does your little one

Take longer than 20 minutes to finish a feed?

Fall asleep during a feed?

Tug at the nipple while feeding?

These are all signs that your baby is ready to move onto a nipple with a faster flow.

Flow rates

We offer nipples with a range of flow rates to suit babies from newborns to 6 months plus. Whether your little one takes their feed slowly or gulps it down quickly, there’s a nipple that’s right for them.

Flow Rates

What flow rates do we have available?

Remember that every baby is different and develops at their own rate so age indications on our nipples are just a guide. Your baby may be ready sooner or later. 


How do I know what nipples I’ve got?

When you have so much baby stuff around, it can be hard to remember what bits go together.

Our Closer To Nature and Advanced Anti-colic bottles use different style nipples. And all our nipples are marked to show their flow rate.

Check out our video guide to help you identify the right nipple for your bottles.
