Pigeon Softouch Peristaltic Plus Wide Neck Teat L 2 Pack
Pigeon Softouch Peristaltic Plus Wide Neck Teat L is highly acclaimed - the result of extensive research into latching, peristaltic movement and swallowing. It has a wide neck design similar to breast shape to avoid nipple confusion and features a textured surface for perfect latch on and good tongue position.
Firm, but soft, the teat allows babies to use their natural feeding motion and each has an Air Ventilation System (AVS) to support constant milk flow and help reduce colic.
Medically researched to mimic the peristaltic (wave-like) motion of sucking during breastfeeding so nipple confusion can be avoided when combining breast with bottle feeding.

What is the difference in the openings of the different teat sizes?
In an SS and S teat, the teat opening is a round hole. This means that if you hold the bottle upside down, milk will drip out without any sucking needed. This is perfect for young babies who have little jaw development yet as they don’t have to work too hard to get their milk.
In the M, L and LL teats, the opening is a cross cut. This means that if you hold the bottle upside down no milk will drip out, as the baby is required to suck on the teat in order to open the cross cut tip. This is perfect for babies as they get older and have stronger jaw muscles. A cross-cut also enables a baby to vary the flow of milk themselves – the harder they suck, the larger the cross-cut opens.
