Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2007137440A2] The invention relates to a teat for feeding bottles, consisting of a receiving head (2), produced from a dimensionally stable material, and a rubber-elastic suction element (1), produced from a rubber-elastic material. An entry channel (207) leading to the interior of the bottle and channels (208, 209) leading from there to the outer surface of the receiving head (2) are configured in the receiving head (2). The suction element (1), in an initial position, elastically and sealingly rests on at least one section of an outer surface (211) of the receiving head (2). Milk ducts (114) are located in the contact area between the suction element (1) and the receiving head (2) and communicate on the one end with the channels (208, 209) of the receiving head (2) which lead towards the outlet channel (116) in the mouthpiece (117) so that, when a vacuum is produced in the mouthpiece (117), milk can flow from the feeding bottle through the milk ducts (114) to the outlet channel (116), the suction element being returnable to its initial position and the flow of milk being interrupted when there is no vacuum. The teat according to the invention thus imitates the natural flow of breast milk.
