Breastfeeding is the best for both mother and baby. However, it is sometimes not possible to feed directly from the breast.
PIGEON offers an extensive range of essential bottles and teats to support expressed breast milk or formula. Our bottles are specially designed for gentle grip and all teats feature a unique venting system to adjust air pressure inside the bottle and help reduce colic.
The Pigeon range of bottles and teats are the result of over 60 years of in-depth design and research in conjunction with paediatricians, paediatric nurses, maternity staff and thousands of babies and their families.
Which bottle to choose usually comes down to personal choice and your baby’s preference, but there are influences.
SofTouch ™ Bottles & Teats (wide neck)
The Pigeon SofTouch™ range of bottles and teats are recognised by their wide neck and offers the most natural feeding - through a bottle. This range is generally recommended when
- Combination breast and bottle feeding;
- Weaning from breast to bottle &
- Your baby won’t take other brand bottles.
SofTouch™bottles are available in three different materials and a range of sizes, allowing you to choose what best suits you and your baby.
For use with SofTouch™ Bottles is the SofTouch™ Peristaltic PLUS Teat. This teat is a silicone bottle teat featuring a textured surface for perfect latch on and good tongue position. The wide neck design is similar to breast shape and helps reduce nipple confusion when combination breast and bottle feeding or when weaning from breast to formula.
Flexible ™ Bottles & Teats (slim neck)
The Pigeon Flexible™ range of bottles and teats are recognised by their slim neck. This range is more traditional in shape and is usually recommended when
- 1) Baby is not breast fed;
- 2) Baby is very small &
- 3) Baby sometimes fusses at the teat.
The bottles are available in four different materials, so you can choose what will be best for you and your baby.
The Pigeon Flexible™ Peristaltic Teat is used with Pigeon Flexible™ Bottles. It is a bottle teat with double thickness silicone to ensure ideal softness and flexibility for latching on comfortably and easily.
