How do I prevent nipple collapse?
Nipple collapse is a problem that occurs when air circulation is cut off inside the bottle and baby continues to suck, thus causing the nipple to collapse into the bottle. This is mostly an issue with babies who are transitioning from a vented nipple/system such as Avent, Dr. Brown’s (with the anti-colic insert), and Born Free. Babies can develop a very strong sucking pattern based on their primary experience with bottle feeding. A small percentage of babies have a hard time moving from one nipple to another, or from a vented nipple to an unvented nipple.
To decrease the possibility of nipple collapse, please follow the suggestions below. If none of these work, you may want to consider trying the Gerber NUK nipples in either Green To Grow regular neck or wide neck bottles, since they are vented and can alleviate the problem of nipple collapse in some cases.
Do not over-tighten the ring that attaches the nipple to the bottle. This is the #1 cause of nipple collapse. The ring should be tight enough so that is doesn’t leak or fall off, but not so tight that it cuts off all air circulation. If nipple collapses into the bottle, loosen the ring, lift it to let air into the bottle, and pull out the nipple. When reattaching the ring, do not over-tighten it. Lack of air circulation can cause nipple to collapse into the bottle.
Green to Grow, in the most fundamental sense, did not start as an idea for a company. It began with the commitment, as parents, to the gathering of information that would allow the founders to provide the best possible care for their son, to keep him healthy, and to protect him from as many dangers as they could. What they found, and continue to find in their research, is both appalling and inspiring. Appalling because humans have created an astounding array of dangers for themselves, and especially for their children. Inspiring because there is deep and widespread commitment to addressing these dangers and to promoting healthy alternatives.
Creating a line of bisphenol A free baby bottles was their way of taking direct action where they saw a need. But while addressing a single concern is a positive step, Green To Grow believes their responsibility cannot end there. In order to address the problems associated with the effects of toxic chemicals on human health and on the environment, they must join together with the larger community of those who are working for a greener and safer world. Not just for children, though they are certainly the most vulnerable in every sense, but for everyone.
