We will make teats to suit both you and your orphan.
All our teats are hand made and small variations will occur.
How to select the most suitable teat.
The letters “S”, “W”, “L” represent the width of the base.
The numbers 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 represent the length of the shaft
The letter “p” after the number means “a pointy tip”.
Start by considering what bottles you are using. Measure the width of the neck where the teat will be attached.
Teats starting with the letter “S” have a 15 mm diameter wide base, suitable for small glass vials, biolac’s Glass bottles, plastic “pet-nurser” bottles, etc.
Teats starting with the letter “W” have a 17 mm diameter wide base, suitable for the plastic “square wombaroo” bottles, glass bottles etc.
Teats starting with the letter “L” have a 20 mm diameter wide base, suitable for your larger glass bottles.
Silicone teats are strong, soft, flexible with a velvet touch, made using high quality food grade silicone with high tensile strength. You can choose from six different semi-transparent colours.
Pre-made holes; you have an option of a pre-made hole in teat sizes 0.5 to 5. The entire teat is created around the hole (no cutting, no skewer needed). The hole sizes are:
- teat size 0.5 : hole size of 0.5 mm
- teat size 1 green, purple, orange : hole size of 0.5 mm
- teat size 1 red, blue, yellow : hole size of 0.6 mm
- teat size 2 : hole size of 0.6 mm
- teat size 3 : hole size of 0.6 mm
- teat size 4 : hole size of 0.6 mm
- teat size 5 : hole size of 0.8 mm
Flanged teats are ideal for carers with arthritis, sore hands, easier and simpler attachment to the bottle and comfort of use. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call Marie on 0417 818 884 for sizes and postage when ordering flanged teats. Most sizes are available. Postage including flanged teats are $8 per order.
Always attach a DRY silicone teat to a DRY rim on the bottle.
Do not overstretch the teat.
We use high quality latex with three layers on each teat.
A strengthened shaft and tip with four layers of latex is available for an extra 20 cents to use on animals who “chew” their teats.
Two layers for the smaller sizes or any other combination can be ordered if you contact us.
Different batches of latex and air temperature when made can alter the final product and we can therefore not guarantee the exact same thickness and strength each time.
How to care for your silicone teats:
Always attach a dry teat to a dry rim on the bottle and avoid the use of sharp finger nails. They can be washes in soapy water, boiled and sterilised but do not over-stretch the teat.
