SO as you can see; while orthodontic nipples are more expensive and less commonly available, they offer unique benefits over the old rounded nipple.
Latex is a soft flexible rubber that closely mimics the feel of a nipple (which is why some baby’s prefer it). Latex nipples are easily identified by their golden brown color and are fairly opaque (a fancy word that means you barely see through them).Baby bottle nipples made from latex wear quicker than those made from silicone. Over time you will notice tiny cracks and tears appear in the nipple. Fortunately, latex nipples are inexpensive and it will not break the bank when the nipple needs to be replaced.Another problem problem with latex is that many babies are allergic to it. If your baby suffers from a latex allergy then you will have to avoid nipples made from latex. If you do not know whether or not your baby is sensitive to latex then you should still avoid these nipples. Better safe than sorry.Silicone is a clear flexible material. While silicone is firmer than latex it is far less likely to trigger an allergic reaction (Silicone allergies are rare) and is the go to nipple material in modern baby bottles. Baby bottle nipples made from silicone will last 3-4 times longer than a latex nipple. If your baby is particularly rough with the nipple then this extra durability can be a blessing. Silicone nipples are firmer than a latex nipple (and your own) and as a result not all babies will take to them.There are two different nipple shapes available. orthodontic nipples and round shaped nipples.The most common baby bottle nipple available. Cheap and it does the job.No it’s not a baby bottle nipple that has half melted. This funny looking thing is known as an orthodontic nipple.
