Closer to Nature Nipples

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.
