It's the best for my baby
When breastfed babies feed they use feeding actions called peristaltic tongue movements, and the vacuum created. (see study by Professor Woolridge ). The NaturalWave™ Teat is specifically designed to allow babies to continue using these same feeding actions when they are feeding from the artificial teat. This means that baby doesn’t have to learn a new feeding action and is more easily able to return to feeding at the breast, keeping Mother and baby together.

Love, love, LOVE this product! I've just started expressing and was worried my baby wouldn't take to a bottle. It took all of 15 secs for her to accept this teat for the first time, and I've switched between bottle & breast with no problems since. Amazing makes my life much easier! Also love the science behind it but I've no way of officially putting that to the test! ;-)

50 years of extensive research revealed that a baby's sucking style consists of 3 key steps: latching on, peristaltic tongue movement (wave like motion of the tongue) and swallowing. It also became apparent that a baby needed to be able to perform the peristaltic tongue movement in order to encourage natural oral and jaw development.
The NaturalWave™ Teat has been specifically designed with this in mind so that baby can mimic the same tongue movement and move easily from breast to bottle and back again. As with all of our products in the Lansinoh range the NaturalWave™ Teat has been created to enable mums to breastfeed for longer giving the freedom to express and feed breastmilk with a reduced risk of nipple confusion.
Lansinoh's NaturalWave™ Teat is clinically proven to encourage this natural feeding pattern.
Please note: We recommend that you exclusively breastfeed your baby for the first 6-8 weeks in order to establish a breastfeeding pattern prior to introducing a bottle.
- Available in slow, medium and fast flow
- Contains 2 x NaturalWave™ Teats

Are Lansinoh® mOmma® Bottles & Teats dishwasher safe?
Lansinoh® mOmma® bottles and NaturalWave™ Teats can be washed in the top shelf of a dishwasher. However for longer life of the NaturalWave™ Teat, we would recommend gentle hand washing.
Can I sterilise Lansinoh® mOmma® bottles and teats in boiling water?
The Lansinoh® mOmma® Bottles and NaturalWave™ Teats can be sterilised by boiling in water for five minutes. Please be sure that there is enough water in the pan and that the different parts are floating and not touching the bottom or the sides of the pan as this could cause them to melt.
Can I use a teat brush to clean the teat?
You can use a teat brush to clean the NaturalWave™ Teat if necessary - it is important to be gentle and not poke the brush through the hole; it is very small and this can compromise the silicone. You can also soak teats in warm soapy water, rinse and air dry, or place in top rack of the dishwasher.
Can the Lansinoh® mOmma® NaturalWave™ Teat be used with other bottles?
The Lansinoh® mOmma® NaturalWave™ Teat is designed for Lansinoh® mOmma® bottles and will not fit on other wide-sized bottles. We do not recommend using our nipple with any other bottle because we have not done testing on other company’s bottles with our teat.
What are the Lansinoh mOmma Bottles and NaturalWaveTM teats made of?
The bottle, collar and cover are made of polypropylene (PP) plastic which is chemical-free, additive free as well as BPA and BPS free. The NaturalWaveTM Teats are made of 100% silicone, which is also BPA and BPS free.
What is BPA and BPS and why should I choose a bottle which does not contain these?
Because safety is a top priority for Lansinoh we have taken proactive measures to ensure the Lansinoh® mOmma® Bottles and Teats are both BPA and BPS FREE.
BPA or bisphenol-A is a chemical used primarily in the production of polycarbonate plastics and acts as an estrogen imposter, being widely known as a hormone disrupter. Studies have linked BPA to cancer, depression, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and a number of other ailments. BPA can be especially dangerous in pregnancy, infancy and childhood – so much so that many governments around the world have banned BPA in the production of baby bottles and other products.
BPS or bisphenol S is an alternative to BPA used by some manufacturers as a plasticiser to replace BPA. BPS is also a hormone disrupter and is considered to be equally unsafe, however this is currently allowed for the production of baby bottles and similar products.
How many flow rates do the NaturalWaveTM Teats come in?
The Lansinoh® mOmma® NaturalWave™ Teats come in slow, medium and fast flow depending on your baby’s needs. Babies’ flow preferences often have to do with the way they feed at the breast. We know all babies and their preferences are different, so we offer three choices because one flow type does not work for all babies.
I have slow, medium and fast teats - is there a way to tell them apart?
On the bottom rim of the teat, the slow-flow teat reads “Size 2S”, the medium-flow reads “Size 3M” and the fast-flow reads “Size 4L”.
When heating in a microwave should the top with the teat be screwed on?
We DO NOT recommend heating breastmilk or any liquid for a baby or toddler in a microwave because the microwave can create hot spots and damage breastmilk nutrients. We do NOT recommend heating the bottle in the Microwave in any form.
Do you only have a wide neck teat?
The NaturalWave™® Teat is a wide neck teat. It enables baby to have a wide latch similar to how a baby would latch on to the breast with a wide open mouth.
How often should I replace the NaturalWave™ Teat?
We suggest inspecting the teat for wear/tear daily, and recommend changing the teat every 7 weeks. If you notice the silicone is torn or compromised in any other way, we recommend discarding it. We also recommend not leaving the teat in direct sunlight, heat or leaving in disinfectant (“sterilizing solution”) for longer than recommended per the instructions as this may weaken the teat.
