Size

Hegen's teats are designed to encourage seamless transition from breast to bottle feeding, minimising nipple confusion for your baby.

Our velvety soft, elliptical shaped teat closely mimics a mother's lactating breast while the off-centre teat design promotes upright feeding - similar to a position in which babies are nursed - to reduce the risk of milk back-flow and resulting mid-ear complications and colic.

The built-in anti-colic air vent reduces unwanted air intake and prevents bubbling of milk, saving precious nutrients from oxidation.

Additional teats of various sizes (all sold separately) allow mothers to simply swap to their choice of teats for baby’s perfect feed as time goes by. Simply assemble the teat into the collar and your Hegen bottle instantly becomes a feeding lid for baby.

*Hegen Teats are embossed with indicators to show the teat flow:
- 0 for Extra Slow Flow (0 months)

Extra Slow Flow teat is suitable from birth (even for premature or low birth weight babies) as it mimics the initial flow of transitional breast milk.


- 1 for Slow Flow (1-3 months)

Slow Flow teat is suitable from the first month as it mimics the initial slow flow of breast milk.


- 2 for Medium Flow (3-6 months)

Medium Flow teat is suitable from the third month as it gradually increases the milk flow rate as babies develop their ability to coordinate both the suckling and swallowing reflex.


- 3 for Fast Flow (6 months and beyond)

Fast Flow teat is suitable from the sixth month as it meets the need for a fast milk flow rate during weaning.


- Y for Thick Feed (for thickened liquids) 

Thick Feed teat has a special Y cut which allows for an extra fast flow and is suitable for semi-solids, thicker feed (e.g. milk with added cereal or rice powder).

*All Hegen teats only have one hole; flow rate of each teat is determined by the size of the hole

1. Mimics The Mother’s Breast

Velvety soft, elliptical shaped teat closely mimics the natural breast of mothers to promote natural latch-on for babies. This minimises nipple confusion, making it easier to combine breast and bottle feeding.

2. Prevents Colic

Air venting bypasses the milk to prevent aeration, minimising the oxidation of precious nutrients. This reduces excessive air intake, safeguarding your baby from tummy upsets.

Know when to upsize your teat

An indication of progress to the next teat flow can be observed through a baby’s body language and feeding behaviour (examples can be found below).

Do consult a healthcare professional if you require more assistance in identifying the right teat flow for your child.
