Introducing the New & Improved SofTouch™ Bottle & Teat Range
Designed from over 60 years of breastfeeding research, we’re excited to announce our new SofTouch™ bottle range.
With the same functions as you know and love, our new SofTouch™ III Bottles & Teats have been improved to encourage a smoother feed from breast to bottle.
Our SofTouch™ III bottles were created to support mothers to continue breastfeeding for as long as they want. The design of our teats mimics the natural drinking pattern of a baby drinking from their mother’s breast by promoting the same 3 feeding movements - latching, sucking and swallowing.
As with all of our SofTouch™ III range, our teats come with an air ventilation system that adjusts air pressure inside the bottle to support constant milk flow and helps reduce the chances of colic.
So, how have our bottles & teats been improved? We’re glad you asked.
Seamless switching between breast to bottle
The new SofTouch™ III teats have two main new features that encourage a seamless switch for a baby between their mother’s breast to bottle.
1. Latch-On Line
The latch-on line is a guide line on the teat which helps new bottle-feeding parents to know where the baby should be latching on the teat. A secure latch to the teat is crucial to successful feeds as it prevents milk leakage and promotes efficient milk intake.
2. Skin-like Teat
We’ve made our teats even softer which makes the feeding experience even closer to a mother’s breast. How? The soft silicone rubber allows the baby to complete smooth peralisatic tongue movements, similarly to the natural feeding experience, which reduces nipple confusion when combination feeding.
If you’re already a Pigeon SofTouch user, you’ll be happy to know that our new teats are 100% compatible with all SofTouch™ bottles.
