PIGEON Peristaltic PLUS Nipple was designed based on advanced nursing research and study to provide the best for mothers and babies that took into consideration not only the Peristaltic Movement but also the Attachment and Swallowing aspect. These three mechanisms work together to enable your baby to feed efficiently.
A Textured Surface for a More Effective Attachment
A fine layer of bumps, known as texturing, is applied to the silicone surface to make it easier for your baby to latch onto and release the nipple.
A Wider Nipple Based for Improved Suction
The nipple base has been widened to prevent baby's lips from reaching the cap during attachment. Baby will then able to form a solid seal on the silicone for more effective sucking.
A Fossa-fitting Nipple Radius
The contour and radius of Peristaltic PLUS™ nipple - 12mm for SS size, 13mm for S, M & L sizes are expertly crafted to fit the cavity at the top of baby's mouth, known as a sucking fossa.
This precise fit enables a better attachment to the nipple when sucking.
Thick but Soft Silicone
The precisely crafted silicone used in the Peristaltic PLUS™ is designed to prevent any interference with peristaltic movement when a baby is sucking.
There are the three varieties of silicone firmness available to match the age of baby, each of which will conform to the movement of baby's tongue.
Nipple Sizes to Match Baby's Development
To prevent newborns from swallowing too much milk, the SS size nipple has been introduced as our smallest nipple hole.
Our M and L nipples use cross cuts instead of round holes to make it harder for large amount of liquid to pass through the nipple tip at once.
It is always recommended that mothers select proper hole sizes that enable baby to have the ideal feeding time of 10 to 15 minutes during each feed.
SS size nipple is very soft and has a round hole. It is recommended for newborns onwards as babies will tend to drink slowly and take frequent breaks.
S size nipple has medium softness with a round hole. It is recommended for 1 month old baby onwards or for newborns that drink a lot of milk with powerful suction.
M size nipple has medium softness with cross-cut hole for variable flow. It is recommended for 3 months old baby onwards.
L size nipple has normal softness with cross-cut hole for variable flow. It is recommended for 6 months old baby or when baby's requirement is beyond M size.
