What flow options do the Lansinoh® NaturalWave® Nipples come in?
Lansinoh® NaturalWave® Nipples come in slow, medium and fast flow depending on baby’s needs. Babies flow preferences often have to do with the way they feed at the breast. Since all babies and their preferences are different, Lansinoh® offers three choices, as one flow type does not work for all.
There are slow, medium and fast nipples. Is there a way to tell them apart?
On the bottom rim of the nipple, the slow-flow nipple reads “Size 2S”, the medium-flow reads “Size 3M” and the fast-flow reads “Size 4L”.
Can a nipple brush be used to clean the nipple?
Yes, a nipple brush can be used to clean the NaturalWave® Nipple if necessary. It is important to be gentle and not poke the brush through the hole, as it is very small, and this action can compromise the silicone. The nipples can also be soaked in warm soapy water, rinsed and air dried, or placed in top rack of the dishwasher.
