Our BIBS medium flow, non-toxic natural rubber teats, are much softer than silicone and more resistant to teething/bites. The softness feels more natural for babies, and the teat shape creates a natural, comforting association for babies used to being breastfed or those used to using natural rubber dummies.
These teats will fit our BIBS glass bottles both in the small 110ml or large 240ml size, and can be sterilised in boiling water for approx 5 mins.
When giving a breastfeeding baby a bottle, it's recommended to use a bottle nipple with a slow flow. This is because breastfed babies are used to working for the milk during breastfeeding since it is harder for the baby to suck out milk from a breast than a bottle. The flow rate should reflect the flow from the breast. If it is too easy for the baby, he or she might start to get lazy or even refuse the breast.
Slow flow anti-colic natural rubber bottle teats are also available for use from 0m+. Recommended by midwives to support natural breastfeeding.

Our why to buy? We love that these bottle teats are thoughtfully produced with a one-piece mould which makes them highly hygienic. Once these natural rubber teats have reached the end of their lifespan, they can be easily composted and returned lovingly back to the earth. Good for baby and good for the planet!

Due to the natural rubber, the teats should not be cleaned in a dishwasher or steamer.
The latex nipple must be cleaned and sterilised before each use:
- Put the nipple in a clean bowl. Pour boiling water over the nipple
- Let it soak for approx. 5 min.
- Pick it up and let it dry on a clean towel
DO NOT use microwave sterilising or cleaning products or even dishwasher as it will break down the natural rubber latex. Renew the nipple after using it for 4-6 weeks for safety and hygiene reasons. Please do not leave the nipple in direct sun.
Further, always inspect the nipple before each use and replace the nipple at the first sign of damage or weakness.
BIBS natural rubber products are not recommended for those with an allergy to latex.
