What nipple flow should I use?

thinkbaby baby bottles come outfitted with Stage A nipples. The nipples are designed for newborns to 6 months. The flow rates are determined by averages. Depending on your little one you may need to adjust which flow rate that you purchase. The chart below should provide help in determining which to purchase.

Childs Age                               Suggested Flow Rate

0 to 6 months                          Stage A Nipples

6 + months                              Stage B Nipples

 

Baby bottle nipples and spouts made from silicone will typically last 2 to 3 months prior to needing replacement. If you notice tears or breakage, discontinue use and replace.

How to prevent nipple collapse?

Step 1: With cross cut nipples it is important that you have the right nipple flow for your childs age. The suggested age range is listed above. This is the number one reason for nipple collapse across baby bottle lines. Please note that these numbers are based on averages. If you have an especially fast or slow feeder on your hands, you may need to adjust your movement between flow levels.

Step 2: Do not over tighten the collar, as this will restrict the airflow.

How does the venting system work?

The venting systems work by allowing air to travel back into the baby bottle. Movement of air back into the baby bottle allows the bottles internal pressure to reach equilibrium. This reduces the amount of suction required to get fluid out of the baby bottle. Research shows that having a venting system reduces the incidence of gas and spit up, as children take in less air when drinking when venting systems are present. While most modern baby bottles have some sort of venting system, the advantage to thinkbabys system is that it is build right into the baby bottle nipple. So there are no extra parts to deal with and its easy to clean.

How do I care for my thinkbaby nipples?

thinkbaby bottles are dishwasher safe (Top Rack recommended). We also recommend making sure that the dishwasher is not set to a super hot setting or dry setting, as this will reduce the longevity of the spout. When washing the nipples in the dishwasher, we recommend using a detergent that is free of chlorine. Most of the natural detergents on the market from Eco Lever to Seventh Generation should be free of toxic chemicals. If hand-washing, the American Pediatrics Association suggests using warm soapy water, but only if you live in an area with treated water systems.

Before first use:

We recommend sterilizing the nipples in boiling water for 2 to 5 minutes before first use. We do not recommend utilizing sterilizers, as we cannot guaranty that the ones on the market were made with safe materials.

To prepare the nipple for first use, please squeeze the top of the nipple and the venting tube between your fingers. This will ensure that both open properly. When tightening down the collar of the bottle, do not over tighten, as this will reduce the amount of airflow into the baby bottle.
