Need help on NUK Teats

Postby Mrs Ang » Mon Apr 05, 2010 1:50 pm

Hi, my girl is using NUK teats and bottle. I am using medium hole for milk feed according to instruction. However she get frustrated on the slow milk flow and doesn't want to continue sucking. Anyone knows how to make the hole bigger as it is at the side. Thanks. :?:

My DS is using the large hole ones. Hehe.
I used a scissor to cut the hole bigger when once I bought a smaller hole, but need to be careful. U need to cut at the outside & the inside.
Hopes this help.

Is it because you added rice powder or are using milk powder that include rice powder?

My husband used a knife to cut the hole bigger and the success rate is 50-50. I must said it needs a lot of skill and we have thrown away a few teats. Are you using large hole ones for milk feeding?

tankee - It is only formula milk.

Hi hold a needle using a pair of pilers or tongs over the stove or fire.

Then poke the hot needle through the hole area. This is a sterilised way to enlarge the hole. Old grandma's tips :D

I tried this once also. Very hard to enlarge the hole unless the needle is very thick type.
Yes, I'm using the large hole for milk formula.

i can't rem where i saw this thing - a teat hole puncher - but i think it was probably tom & stef or giant. i can't even rem the brand, sorry. but i was curious as to why there was this puncher thingy among the baby products on display so i took a closer look. the words on the packaging states that it is to make the teat hole bigger.

Thats wat i did too for my ds. I juz dipped a thick needle into hot water and poke thru the original hole and expand it bit by bit, till its ideal. Of course, u need to sterilize the teat before using. It works better than using scissors, since the teats can last longer before the hole become hopelessly big and time to throw it away.

I just got the teat hole pin enlarger thingy from my monster mil. It is not a puncher...there are 3 different pin sizes and you need to poke thru the original hole. I will try and hope it works.
