Review: Pigeon Peristaltic Nipples
Designed to be just like a Mother’s nipple!
When I needed to get back at work I was worried that my baby can’t be able to adapt easily to bottle-feeding. He finds normal bottle nipples hard to suck on.
Thanks a heap to my Mum for introducing Peristaltic Nipples. She told me that my little sister used them for 3 years and that they are the best nipples available in baby stores.
Peristaltic Nipples are softer and super stretchy compared to normal nipples. They are made of super soft silicone and are twice as thick as normal nipples. They also house a venting system which minimizes air intake, thus reducing spit ups, colic, and ear infections.
My baby boy, Zaiel, didn’t have a hard time sucking on peristaltic nipples for his first try. He used Pigeon Peristaltic Nipples in M sized teats (medium flow) for his 2nd and 3rd months, and now I bought several L sized teats (fast flow) for his increasing feeding demands.
One set (2 pcs) of PIGEON standard-neck peristaltic nipples costs Php 180.00, and not more than Php 300.00 for wide-neck bottles.
“When a baby sucks, the teat section stretches up to 5mm to fit into baby’s mouth. Baby uses its tongue in peristaltic movement and stretch nipple back and forth.”
“This unique design allows the nipple to stretch in response to the natural peristaltic movement of a baby’s tongue, just like natural breastfeeding.”
