Automatic pacing and Flow-control®
Flow control is the group of different sized-orifices on the nipple’s tip. The nipple dispenses different flow rates controlled by the baby’s sucking strength:
- With weaker suction (i.e. a newborn’s) only one orifice dispenses (flow similar to a standard newborn nipple)
- With stronger suction (i.e. a 10-month-old baby) all the other orifices dispense (similar to a mom’s breast)
Our Flow-Control® Technology gives the baby full control over the pace and flow of which she feeds to prevent overfeeding and nipple confusion.
What’s the flow of the breast?
Flow-control® technology in Bare® Air-free nipples works closer to the breast than those of traditional baby bottles. Therefore, your baby controls the flow and pace just like she does at the breast.
Bare® Air-free nipples are designed with nature in mind. This mimicry science has invaluable benefits for babies. For example, during the same feeding, the baby needs different flow rates. Most importantly, if the baby slows down the suction or pauses, the flow slows down or stops accordingly. Flow-control® technology adapts to the baby’s feeding needs.
Flow-control®; technology beyond the nipple
The breasts don’t have nipples stages; therefore, Bare’s don’t have stages either. This inconvenience was created by the traditional baby bottle industry many decades ago.
If you are currently breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed, we recommend you use the Perfe-latch® nipple. The design of this nipple allows for a deep/wide latch on the areola part of the nipple. Then, the tip extends upon suction. This exercise is very similar to breastfeeding, thus avoiding nipple confusion.
If you do not plan to breastfeed and are using traditional baby bottles, then, the Easy-latch® is more appropriate
