The soft and extra-supple texture of the physiological teat provides your baby with a sensation that is similar to breastfeeding. The teat’s enlarged base in particular reproduces the natural sucking position. Its adapted perforation regulates the flow according to the liquid contained in the bottle, which encourages your baby to exert the same sucking effort as at the breast. Thus, your baby doesn’t lose the habit of breastfeeding (unlike with other teats that often propose a single, much faster flow rate.)
Élhée teats incorporate a valve that reduces the absorption of air during suction, thus decreasing the baby’s risk of colic. It’s a slit-shaped opening on the side of the teat specifically designed to reduce air absorption and the risk of regurgitation by the baby, to aid its digestive comfort.
The asymmetrical shape of the Elhée teat comprises a rounded part, which is placed against the upper palate, and a flat part, placed against the baby’s tongue. The anti-colic valve should be placed on top, directly under the baby’s nose.
