The teat opening and ventilation hole can become clogged which can lead to teat collapse. It is important to keep these areas clear.
The tip of the teat is very delicate. When using a teat brush to clean it, gently press the tip with the tip of your finger while washing to prevent the brush from breaking through.
Before using a teat, inspect it well. Pull the teat in all directions to ensure no damage. If there is any sign of damage or weakness, throw the teat away.
Teats may be worn by biting. Special attention is needed for teething children.
Do not leave a teat in direct sunlight or heat, or leave in disinfectant/sterilising solution for longer than recommended. This may weaken the teat.
When not in use, keep in a dry, covered container.
