Control Flow Nipples

Are all slow flow nipples the same?

No, not at all. Many parents may be surprised to learn that there is no standard measurement for slow flow nipples. One brand’s newborn nipple may be faster or slower than the next. In fact, we talked to nurses and clinicians at NICUs and pediatric hospitals across the U.S. and they told us that this lack of consistency is one of the biggest problems they face when working with preemies or infants with feeding challenges. They have found that slow flow rates even vary among nipples manufactured by the same brand!

Our line of nfant® Control Flow Nipples features consistent slow rates you can depend on that are based on clinical testing of flow rates and how baby’s respond. We developed our nipples on years of scientific data and our team’s deep understanding of how infants feed.
