The Elhee Teat, made of extra-soft silicone, has been developed to offer sensations close to breastfeeding. It adapts ideally to the shape of the baby’s palate and contributes to its good oral development. Its anti-colic system reduces air absorption and facilitates digestion in babies. Free from BPA and BPS.
The flow rates of the teats are indicated under the base of the teat (S = slow flow, M = medium flow, L = dense flow). The numbers on the bottom of the teat correspond to those of the production series and are not related to the size of the teat.
Designed to adapt as closely as possible to their needs, the teat size 1 slow flow (S) is ideal for breastfed or premature babies, especially to avoid the risk of breast / teat confusion. The teat size 1 and size 2 medium flow (M) is ideal for infant milk or water. The teat size 2 flow Dense (D) is ideal for thick liquids (thickened milk, cereals…). The teat size 1 is suitable from 0-6 months and teat size 2 is suitable from 3 to 24 months. Refer to FAQs for more information.

Can I alternate breastfeeding with Elhee Baby Bottle?
The soft and extra-supple texture of the physiological teat provides your baby with a sensation that is similar to breastfeeding. The teat’s enlarged base in particular reproduces the natural sucking position. Its adapted perforation regulates the flow according to the liquid contained in the bottle, which encourages your baby to exert the same sucking effort as at the breast. Thus, your baby doesn’t lose the habit of breastfeeding, unlike with other teats that often propose a single, much faster flow rate.
Which teat is best adapted to my baby's bottle?
To adapt to babies’ needs, the Elhee teat is available in 2 sizes (0 – 3 months and 3 – 24 months) and 3 flow rates (S, M, L). The baby’s flow preferences are usually related to how they breastfeed. Some are eager to eat, others need more time. The sizes and flow rates, below, are indicated under the base of the teat.
From birth, 0 to 6 months: Size 1 S Slow Flow
From 3 months: Size 1 M Medium Flow
From 6 months: Size 2 M Medium Flow, Size 2 L Fast Flow
Is there a specific sense when using the teat?
The asymmetrical shape of the Elhee teat comprises a rounded part, which is placed against the upper palate, and a flat part, placed against the baby’s tongue. The anti-colic valve should be placed on top, directly under the baby’s nose.
How do I care for the teat? How often should it be changed?
Before and after each use, the teat should be thoroughly cleaned separately from the ring with a conventional or ecological dishwashing liquid, and then rinsed in clear water. A special mini-brush for teats can be used.
For reasons of hygiene and safety, it is advisable to replace the teat after 4 to 8 weeks, depending on its frequency of use.
