Wider: 16mm, to cover the palate avoiding the risk of the teat becoming stuck in the cleft which would direct the milk into the nasal cavity
Thicker: 2mm on the upper side, to act as a substitute palate and allow for better suction
Thinner: 0.9mm and softer on the lower side, to allow baby to easily squeeze the milk out by gently pressing the teat with their tongue.
Variable Flow Y Cut: To make sure baby only gets the amount of liquid that they are able to swallow. The Y cut allows baby to get milk easily by pressing the tip with their tongue, allowing the Y cut to open its flaps mechanically instead of relying on suction strength. The Cleft Palate Teat comes in both a regular and small size.
As each cleft palate is unique use the regular teat when your baby is ready to accept it. For newborns use the small teat.
