When it comes to choosing feeding products for your child it is important to consider their long term oral development. This is exactly what two leading orthodontists, Prof. Dr. W Balters and Dr. med. dent. A Muller did more than 60 years ago.

Their groundbreaking research found that a mother’s nipple changes shape during breastfeeding to an asymmetric form, adapting to the shape of baby’s mouth, and that prolonged use of conventional round or 'cherry top' teats and soothers could cause oral abnormalities like open bite. This insight led them to develop the original orthodontic NUK shape which is still found on all NUK Teats and Soothers today.
