We thought it would be helpful to create a guide to explain all about the different shaped teats that the HEVEA natural rubber dummy range contains. These are symmetrical, round and orthodontic teats. We carry all the three different types of HEVEA pacifier teat shapes here at Nature's Little Ones.

Round Pacifier Teat
The round shape is similar to the shape of both the HEVEA baby glass bottle and most other bottle nipples. If your child is used to drinking from a bottle, there is a fairly big chance they will love the HEVEA dummy with a round teat!
Orthodontic Pacifier Teat
An orthodontic dummy is designed to prevent tooth misalignment and orthodontic issues later in life, as baby teeth come in and eventually give way to adult teeth. The HEVEA orthodontic dummy has a flattened bottom and rounded top. It is often referred to as an anatomical pacifier.
Symmetrical Pacifier Teat
The teat shape on the HEVEA symmetrical dummy is similar to the shape of the female breast, and is therefore recommended for breastfed babies. The symmetrical pacifier is HEVEA's smallest nipple, so if your child has found other dummies too big, we recommend giving this teat shape a try!
