The NUK ShapeNUK 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, it is for this reason that all NUK Bottles and Teats are approved by the Oral Health Foundation for encouraging baby’s healthy oral development.

All NUK Bottles and Teats also feature an innovative Anti-Colic Air System which reduces the risk of infant colic.

NUK Orthodontic Soothers – For healthy development of baby’s teeth and jaw

Babies have a natural urge to suck. This urge is satisfied naturally during breastfeeding but you can also help satisfy this urge between meal times with a NUK Soother. The NUK shape is based on a mother’s nipple during breastfeeding and adapts ergonomically to baby’s jaw. It is soft and flexible with enough room for the tongue and places no unnecessary pressure on the jaw and teeth.

This means that NUK Soothers not only soothe baby but also promote healthy oral development; whilst baby sucks, it is training its muscles and perfecting the coordination between the jaw, palate, tongue and lips. This helps support breathing, eating and speech development and helps prevents teeth misalignment and it is for this reason that all NUK Soothers are approved by the Oral Health Foundation.
