What's included: Hegen Thick Feed teat comes in a pack of two, allowing parents to have a spare teat on hand or use it for twins.
The Hegen thick feed teat is designed specifically for thicker liquids and semi-solid foods. Here are some benefits of using the Hegen thick feed teat:
Easy flow for thick liquids: The thick feed teat has a wider and larger opening compared to other teat options. This design allows for a smooth and uninterrupted flow of thicker liquids, such as purees, cereals, and thicker formula mixtures.
Reduced clogging: Thicker liquids can sometimes clog regular teats, leading to interruptions in feeding and frustration for both the baby and the caregiver. The Hegen thick feed teat is specifically designed to prevent clogging, ensuring a continuous flow of thicker fluids.
Transition to solid foods: As babies begin to transition to solid foods, the thick feed teat can facilitate the introduction of thicker textures. It allows babies to experience a different sensation and learn how to consume semi-solid foods in a bottle format before transitioning to spoon-feeding.
Promotes self-feeding skills: The wide opening of the thick feed teat encourages babies to actively participate in feeding and develop their self-feeding skills. It enables them to have more control over the flow and pace of their feeding, promoting independence and oral motor development.
Versatile use: The Hegen system's modular design allows parents to switch between different teat options based on their baby's feeding needs. The thick feed teat can be used interchangeably with other Hegen components, offering flexibility and convenience for different feeding routines.
When using the thick feed teat, it's important to ensure that the thickness of the food or liquid is appropriate for your baby's age and developmental stage. Always consult with a healthcare professional or pediatrician for guidance on introducing solid foods and determining the right consistency for your baby.
