  • Product Description

    The NUK Perfect Start Set contains everything you need to get started with bottle-feeding, plus one NUK orthondontic Clear soother.

    To ensure that feeding by bottle replicates breast feeding as closely as possible, NUK took a mother’s breast as their model when designing the NUK orthodontic teat shape. The unique NUK orthodontic shape was developed over 50 years ago after intensive research by two German orthodontists. Their research found that prolonged use of conventional round teats and soothers could cause oral abnormalities. They therefore decided to develop a teat that is based on the shape of a mother’s nipple during breast-feeding. By closely mimicking the sucking action of breast-feeding, NUK teats and soothers encourage the correct oral development for your baby. NUK teats are used in many maternity and neonatal wards throughout the UK. In fact, NUK is currently used in over 200 hospitals, including Great Ormond Street, Alder Hey and Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The NUK orthodontic teat is recommended by 93% of paediatricians and 87% of midwives and is the only teat approved by the British Dental Health Foundation.

    Why is the NUK orthodontic shape so special? 1. It encourages the sucking action which is important for current jaw development. To help with the birthing process, all babies are born with under-developed jaws. The mouth, tongue and jaw muscles are then developed by the natural sucking action used in breast-feeding, which makes the baby ‘work’ for his feed. By developing these muscles correctly, there will be sufficient space for correct development of the teeth. It is this natural sucking action that the NUK teat mimics, so feeding from a NUK teat will encourage healthy oral development.

    2. It replicates the shape of mother’s nipple when it is inside baby’s mouth making switching between breast and bottle easier. During breastfeeding, the nipple is elongated. It is this elongated nipple shape that the NUK teat mimics, ensuring babies suck on the NUK teat in the same way as they suck on the nipple. The NUK teat gives an airtight suction and a flattened area to press with their tongue in the same way a nipple does. This special orthodontic shape is found on all NUK teats and soothers.

    Features of the NUK Teat a.The flat underside of the teat ensures correct positioning of the tongue, encouraging the milking action that helps to widen the jaw. b.The angled surface supports the upper lip and acts as an anchor for the milking action of the lower jaw just like the ariola. c.NUK Air System: All NUK teats have an air vent on the upper side which compensates for the difference in air pressure in the bottle. This helps to prevent the teat collapsing and the baby swallowing harmful air, which helps prevent colic. d.The feed hole is directed upwards so milk is directed towards the infant’s palate and mixes with saliva to aid good digestion. e.The slender neck allows for an airtight sucking action and helps prevent the swallowing of air and the common problem of colic in feeding infants

    NUK Sizes and Feed-Holes NUK teats and soothers are available in different sizes, making sure they encourage the correct oral development for your baby at any age. NUK Teats and Silicone Soothers are available in Size 1 and 2. Latex soothers are also available in Size 3. The sizing is as follows: Size 1 – 0-6 months, Size 2 6-12 months , Size 3 12-18 months. NUK teats are also equipped with different size feed holes to suit your baby’s needs. Teats are available with medium feed hole, which is suitable for breast or formula milk (and will suffice for most babies), and large feed hole for hungrier babies or thickened feeds.

    NUK First Choice Bottles The First Choice range was developed with mums and medical experts worldwide to find the ideal feeding bottle.
