*Hegen Teats are embossed with indicators to show the teat flow: - 0 for Extra Slow Flow (0 months) - 1 for Slow Flow (1-3 months) - 2 for Medium Flow (3-6 months) - 3 for Fast Flow (6 months and beyond) - Y for Thick Feed (for thickened liquids) *All Hegen teats only have one hole; flow rate of each teat is determined by the size of the hole
Hegen’s teat is suitable from birth (even for premature or low birth weight babies) as it mimics the initial flow of transitional breast milk.
Hegen's teats are designed to encourage seamless transition from breast to bottle feeding, minimising nipple confusion for your baby.
Our velvety soft, elliptical shaped teat closely mimics a mother's lactating breast while the off-centre teat design promotes upright feeding - similar to a position in which babies are nursed - to reduce the risk of milk back-flow and resulting mid-ear complications and colic.
The built-in anti-colic air vent reduces unwanted air intake and prevents bubbling of milk, saving precious nutrients from oxidation.
Additional teats of various sizes (all sold separately) allow mothers to simply swap to their choice of teats for baby’s perfect feed as time goes by. Simply assemble the teat into the collar and your Hegen bottle instantly becomes a feeding lid for baby.

2 x Hegen Teats Extra Slow Flow
1. Mimics The Mother’s Breast
Velvety soft, elliptical shaped teat closely mimics the natural breast of mothers to promote natural latch-on for babies. This minimises nipple confusion, making it easier to combine breast and bottle feeding.
2. Prevents Colic
Asymmetrical teat for upright feeding
Hegen’s super soft teats are asymmetrical and off-centre to allow for a natural upright feeding position at a 20 degrees tilt, similar to nursing from the breast. This minimises the tilt that conventional baby bottles require, reducing the risk of milk back-flow which may cause mid-ear complications.
Know when to upsize your teat
An indication of progress to the next teat flow can be observed through a baby’s body language and feeding behaviour (examples can be found below).
Do consult a healthcare professional if you require more assistance in identifying the right teat flow for your child.
