Discover our Closer to Nature® breast-like nipple for a natural latch and smooth transition from breast to bottle.

Go with the Flow
We offer nipples with a range of flow rates to suit babies from newborns to 6 months plus. Our Closer to Nature nipples fit all Closer to Nature baby bottles and come in a range of flow rates to keep up with your growing baby.  Every baby is different but as a guide we suggest extra slow flow or slow flow for 0+ months, medium flow for 3+ months and fast flow for 6+ months, or variable flow to cover all age stages. For thicker, added cereal feeds try our Y-cut teat. Whether your little one takes their bottle slowly or gulps it down quickly, there’s a nipple that’s right for them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Baby loves I brought these nipples to fit my bottles I had just brought. My baby loves Tommee Tippee bottles. We brought size 0 due to the extra slow flow for our little man. The slow flow nipples allow him to get the right amount of milk. We have used Tommee Tippee bottles as soon as we went from beastfeed to bottle. These bottle seriously help our little man stay happy and they get the job done. It was a super easy transition from the beast to bottle. Size 0 extra slow nipples are great for our newborn. I definitely recommend this product and nipple size for a newborn.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No holes?? These nipples would have been great except they were shipped without holes at all. It took me an hour to figure out why my baby was screaming during our feed. (I know I probably should have checked sooner. FTM so I’m learning.) I can’t find these in stores so it’s disappointing that I ordered them and can’t even use them. Currently cuddling her more from the guilt of letting her go hungry for that long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like a breast I think $3 a nipple is a bit much, but it was definitely worth it for my baby. I bought this when we were in the hospital because he wasn't gaining enough weight his first week. The extra slow nipple is great because it mimics how much my baby works at the breast and I love that he has to use the same latch on this bottle as me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Great slow flow for my daughter. Who's formula is thicker due to reflux. Thank you for fast shipping, great prices and an overall great product. When I was breast feeding the transition from bottle to nipple was easy. Thank you again. Satisfied Mom

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nipple The nipple is a great nipple it reminds me of the breast itself. My child had no trouble latching to the nipple and was able to take his bottle very easily. It was very nice to see the vent feature work with gas bubbles coming from it. The nipple was very easy to clean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nipples Love these. They work very well and they don't drip everywhere. They are the perfect size. If you are supplementing then these are great to use our when if transitioning as they are close to natural as you can get. Very easy to clean and I would highly recommend.
