Lots of parents choose silicone. There are good reasons for doing this.
There is just one disadvantage: Conventional silicone is slightly tougher than latex. It therefore feels artificial. But babies discover the world with their mouth. How things feel and taste is important to them.
The MAM Silk Teat® boasts all of the advantages of standard silicone and is also extra-soft: the silicone with that certain extra edge! Ensuring that babies can enjoy all the benefits of the material to the full.
The reason for this is a development from the MAM Design Studio: The surface of conventional silicone is made silky soft by employing a special technology. An innovation that babies can feel – all MAM silicone pacifiers, bottles and nipple shields (for short-term support with breastfeeding) are fitted with the MAM Silk Teat®.
Babies love the smart Silk Teat® because it feels soft and familiar – like Mummy's skin. This makes the switch between breastfeeding and bottle particularly easy. And the little ones can relax right from day one.
Gabriele Stenz, who has been working as a midwife for 25 years and acts as an adviser to MAM, emphasises: "Thanks to the silky soft surface, babies accept the teat immediately."
This assessment backs up a study: 200 parents across Europe tested the MAM Silk Teat®. 90 per cent of them were very much persuaded by its unique quality. Their children accepted the teat immediately.
Bottles, pacifiers, nipple shields: All MAM Silk Teats® are produced in Europe and subject to strict quality controls. In the MAM Studio, medical experts, designers and technicians work together to develop unique premium products.
The Silk Teat® is without doubt one of the reasons for the presentation of a series of awards that MAM was delighted to receive in 2009/10:
Many parents opt for silicone teats. If you want more, the MAM Silk Teat® is the perfect choice for you: Hygienic and extra soft at the same time. – For the best start in life.
