In nearly all cases, newborn babies, with cleft lip face eating problems: they can not exert the downward pressure required for mammalian movements in the mouth. This weakness makes it difficult or even impossible to breastfeed or to use a bottle with simple nipples.
For these children, NUK has designed special nipples taking into account the particular anatomical structure of the upper jaw of the infants. NUK’s nipple nipple is designed to aid mammalian movements in the case of children with one-sided lobes in which a palatal plaque has been placed, as well as in the exceptional cases of slimy-lipped children with a palatal plaque.
NUK’s nipple combines shape with functionality and does not look like a prosthetic device. The front part of the palate is covered, thus blocking the oral cavity so that it can create downward pressure in the mouth.
