A Level 1 or newborn teat generally comes on every bottle and is a great starting point for many babies. Ideal choice for your infant if she is feeding well and shows no signs of feeding challenges.
Which teat is best for breastfed babies?
Try a slow-flow teat. For some babies, especially young babies, a medium flow teat may flood them with milk. If your baby gags when bottle feeding, replace their teat with a slow-flow one to see if that helps. Let someone else feed them the first bottle.
What bottle nipples are best for newborns?
A slow-flow nipple is best for breastfed babies because it best mimics the natural flow of milk from the breast. A wide-neck nipple base may work for some babies but most have a hard time getting their small mouths around them.
