Vented Bottle Teats
Find some answers to the most frequently asked questions about your Baby Bottle Teats
Can I put bottles and teats in the dishwasher?
Of course! Pop them on the top shelf though. As with all white and clear plastic things they can get a bit stained and yucky-looking in the dishwasher (blame that bolognese sauce or carrot soup you had last night). If they do get discoloured there’s nothing to worry about - they’re perfectly safe, they just don’t look as inviting!
Why is the teat collapsing when my baby is feeding?
The Closer to Nature® Sensitive Tummy/Vented Bottle Teat's round dome valve, which fits onto the bottom of the venting tube is also very sensitive as it is made of specially designed silicone material. This can also stick together at times when not used for periods of time. To ensure the slit in the dome valve is open before use, flush through with water, gently manipulating the valve between your finger and thumb until you see the slit re-open.
When will my baby be ready for a faster teat?
There’s no single answer to this as every baby is totally different. We do a medium flow teats which most babies are ready for at around 3 months, and a fast flow teat which is usually best from around 6 months. Most babies will let you know in their own way when they’re ready to feed more quickly.
How long do teats last?
Our bottles will last as long as your baby needs them, but teats take a little more hammering, and should be changed regularly if you can. We suggest about about every 8-weeks for variflow and every 12-weeks for Easi-Vent and Ultra teats.
Can I use Easi-Vent Teats on Vented Bottles?
The simple answer is no, and we’re really sorry about that. Most of our products are made with interchangeable parts to make life as simple as possible. But the Easi-Vent teats have a built-in air valve, and wouldn’t work properly on our Vented Bottles.
