When it comes to choosing feeding products for your child it is important to consider their long term oral development. This is exactly what two leading orthodontists, Prof. Dr. W Balters and Dr. med. dent. A Muller did more than 60 years ago. Their groundbreaking research found that a mother’s nipple changes shape during breastfeeding to an asymmetric form, adapting to the shape of baby’s mouth, and that prolonged use of conventional round or “cherry top” teats and soothers could cause oral abnormalities like open bite. This insight led them to develop the original orthodontic NUK shape which is still found on all NUK Teats and Soothers today. The NUK shape NUK Orthodontic Bottles – Inspired by nature The NUK shape, as found on all NUK Bottles and Teats, is inspired by mother-nature. It closely mimics the shape of a mother’s nipple, which changes shape during breastfeeding, this makes it easier for babies to accept and reduces the risk of nipple confusion, it also enables mums to more easily switch between breast and bottle-feeding should they choose to combination feed. Because the NUK orthodontic shape closely mimics mother-nature it is designed to perfectly fit baby’s mouth, which encourages the healthy development of their jaw and teeth. All NUK Bottles and Teats also feature an innovative Anti-Colic Air System which reduces the risk of infant colic.
