    What's included:

    TWO Hegen Nipple Slow Flow

    Our various size nipples adapt to your baby’s changing feeding needs from slow to medium and fast. We also offer a specific thick feed nipple when adding rice powder or cereal. Our design includes an elongated nipple to mimic a mother’s breast and minimize nipple confusion, this requires the baby to use the tongue rather than suck just as when feeding from the breast. The nipple is positioned off-center to promote upright feeding and reduces back flow. The anti-colic vent prevents air bubbles leading to comfort for baby and preserving precious nutrients in the breast milk.

    *Hegen Nipples are marked with "0/1/2/3/Y" embossing to indicate extra slow flow/ slow flow/ medium flow/ fast flow/ thick feed respectively.

    HOW TO:

    Remove the cover: with the Hegen logo facing you push away from you to open and remove cover

    Insert the nipple: Face anti-colic vent toward you and line up with the Hegen logo in collar. Place the collar over the nipple and pull nipple upwards through the collar to secure in place. The nipple will fit snugly into the collar.

    Bottle Mimics Mothers Breast

    1. Mimics The Mother's Breast

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

    2. Prevents Colic

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

    Asymmetrical Nipple for Upright Feeding

    Asymmetrical nipple for upright feeding

    Hegen's super soft nipples are asymmetrical and off-center to allow for a natural upright feeding position at a 20 degrees tilt, similar to nursing from the breast. This minimizes the tilt that conventional baby bottles require, reducing the risk of milk back-flow which may cause mid-ear complications.

    Know when to upsize your nipple

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

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