Pigeon Palate Silicone Nipple Size: R
Pigeon Cleft Palate Silicone Nipple Size: R
• Brand: Pigeon
• Specially designed for the proper feeding of infants with a cleft palate or poor sucking strength.
• The Y-cut nipple is thick on one side and thin on the other for easy sucking.
• One-way valve prevents milk inside the nipple from flowing back into the bottle.
• Pigeon focused on the fact that infants with CLP who cannot latch on correctly need a uniquely shaped bottle teat to permit them to suck with ease
• A normal-shaped teat tends to wedge into the cleft
• To overcome this problem, a teat was developed with a thicker wall on the palate side
• The teat did not wedge into the cleft, and the infant was able to suck from the teat using peristaltic tongue movement and swallow without spilling milk or choking
