What we do

For over 60 years we’ve been listening to midwives, doctors, nutritionists and most importantly parents. We listen to learn about the needs of parent and child in those precious early years, this enables us to consistently deliver products that really do make life easier.

NUK offers an extensive range of baby products including breastfeeding aids, bottles & teats, soothers, cups, weaning products and many others. We work with trusted experts including child nutrition specialist and author, Annabel Karmel and breastfeeding consultant, Clare Byam-Cook, to ensure that our products meet the needs of the people who matter most: the parents and children who use them.

We also offer licensed ranges that offer all the benefits of NUK combined with classic Disney designs.

Why choose NUK?

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.
