Which should I choose, slim or wide neck bottles?

Both our Slim and Wide Neck teats have been designed to allow your baby to use their natural feeding motions used in breastfeeding – Peristaltic motion. Whether you decide to use Slim or Wide neck bottles comes down to personal choice and whichever your baby prefers.

There are a couple of reasons that may influence your decision though:

  • The majority of bottles used in hospital are slim neck as the pre-made formula comes in slim neck bottles, so if your baby needs to be bottle fed in hospital for whatever reason they will generally use a slim neck bottle. Once a baby is used to one style of bottle and is happy with it, it’s usually best to leave them on that style
  • If your baby has palate/mouth-related feeding issues, health professionals usually recommend using slim neck bottles for the best success
  • Some mums are influenced by their local health professionals and some will prefer slim over wide and vice versa for their own reasons

Wide neck teats are a different design to the slim neck because they are specifically shaped to be more like a breastfeed to avoid nipple confusion.

The lip position on slim vs wide is different. With Wide you get the same ‘Special K’ shaped lip position that you get on a breast. This is why the design of the teats is different. The slim neck teat (Peristaltic) has not been specifically made to look/feel like a breast like the wide (SofTouch Peristaltic PLUS), but both are designed to mimic the same feeding motion that babies use when breastfeeding.

These are only recommendations and unfortunately there are no rules when it comes to what a baby will like – some may be happy to continually switch between slim and wide day to day, whilst other breastfed babies will be perfectly fine to use slim neck bottles etc. These are just guidelines to help you select the style most likely to be best but there may be some trial and error required to find out which suits your baby. The best bottle style is the one that your baby feeds happily from.
