Colic in infants may be caused by a combination of inﬂuences including ingesting air during feeding. The new advanced comfort™ range from closer to nature is specially designed to help reduce air bubbles in the milk and to encourage a good latch-on to help reduce the risk of baby ingesting air during feeding. The air vents down through the tube and into the air-space at the base of the bottle, completely bypassing the milk.
Closer to Nature advanced comfort™ Bottles provide optimum venting during feeding via a unique tube and valve system. They also help provide a continual feeding action via an easy-latch-on teat. The breast like shape of the Closer to Nature teat allows baby to latch on easily and further supports the transition between bottle and breast. Flex and stretch ripples allow the Closer to Nature teat to mimic the natural flex and movement of mum’s breast. Designed to be held in the most natural position during feeding, the compact shape of Closer to Nature bottles allows baby to be closer to you. For total reassurance, all of our products are free from Bisphenol A (BPA).
A baby can ingest air during feeding in two ways:
1. Air within the milk
2. When feeding at the teat
Tube and valve system reduces air in milk
Closer to Nature advance comfort bottles provide optimum venting during feeding via a unique tube and valve system. Air can enter the bottle safely, vents down through the tube and into the air-space at the base of the bottle, completely bypassing the milk.
Wide neck teat for easy latch on
The Advanced Comfort teat with wide neck design allows for an easy and more natural latch on for your baby, so there is less risk of air being taken in during the feeding process.
Soft silicone teat
Soft silicone teat developed with breastfeeding experts and mums, feels like skin and gently elongates and flexes during feeding to mimic natural breastfeeding action. Closer to Nature Bottles makes feeding time easier for mum and baby.
Breast like shape
The breast like larger shaped teat of the Closer to Nature bottle allows baby to latch on easily and further supports the transition between bottle and breast.
Three way compact shape
The compact shape of Closer to Nature bottles allows baby to feed in a natural position and to be closer to mum or dad. The easy hold bottle can be held in 3 ways--cradled comfortably in the hand, gripped in the same way as a traditional wide neck bottle, or held from the base--making feeding comfortable for everyone.
Easy to clean and use
Closer to Nature bottles and teats are easy to clean and fill. They are microwave and dishwasher safe, yet light and easy to hold. The easy hold bottle is marked in millimetres and ounces and has a hygiene seal cap to keep germs out and drips in.
For total reassurance, all of our products are free from Bisphenol A (BPA).
Advanced comfort teats
The Advanced comfort teats do not feature the easi-vent valve found in standard closer to nature teats as they have a unique tube and valve system to provide optimum venting during feeding, The closer to nature easy vent teats are not compatible with the advanced comfort range and should not be used together. The advanced comfort teats are clearly labeled with an Anti-Colic mark on the teat and the packaging has a purple background to help identify the range.
The advanced comfort teats are available in two flow rates, medium and fast. You can select the flow rate most suited to your babies needs at every stage.
All our teats are supplied with an age range; this acts as a guide only as every baby is different and will develop at different rates. The flow rate can be located on the actual teat in the form of a number, 2 is medium and 3 is fast flow.
We recommend changing your teats every 4-6 weeks or at the first sign of any wear and tear. Signs that your baby is ready to progress onto the next teat are when they try to suck harder to get milk more or become frustrated and tired during feeds.
