What's included: Hegen Fast Flow teat comes in a pack of 2, allowing parents to have a spare teat on hand or use it for twins.
The Hegen fast flow teat offers several benefits for both parents and babies. Here are some advantages of using the Hegen fast flow teat:
Efficient feeding for older babies: As babies grow and their feeding skills develop, they may require a faster flow rate to keep up with their increasing appetite. The fast flow teat allows for a quicker and more efficient feeding experience, accommodating the needs of older babies who can handle a faster milk flow.
Time-saving: With a fast flow teat, babies can finish their feeding sessions more quickly. This can be particularly helpful for busy parents who need to feed their babies on a tight schedule or when time is limited.
Suitable for thicker fluids: As babies start to incorporate thicker liquids or purees into their diet, the fast flow teat can handle these changes more effectively than slower flow rates. It allows for a smooth flow of thicker fluids without clogging or causing excessive effort for the baby.
Enhanced self-feeding skills: The fast flow teat encourages babies to actively participate in the feeding process and develop their self-feeding skills. The increased flow rate requires them to coordinate their sucking and swallowing, promoting oral motor development.
Versatile use: The Hegen system's modular design allows parents to interchange teat flow rates as needed. The fast flow teat can be used with other Hegen components, such as the breast milk storage containers or feeding bottles, providing convenience and flexibility in feeding routines.
It's important to note that the fast flow teat is typically recommended for older babies who have already developed their feeding skills. The transition to a fast flow teat should be done gradually and based on the individual baby's readiness. As always, it's advisable to observe your baby's feeding behavior and consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns or questions about selecting the appropriate teat flow rate.
