Why are Avent teats and soothers made of silicon instead of latex?

Published on 03 October 2022

The advantages of Silicone compared to Latex:

  • Highly transparent, for a natural and hygienic aspect
  • Suitable for people with a latex allergy
  • Silicone rubber is more durable than latex rubber
  • Sturdy - hard for baby to bite through
  • Tasteless and odourless - makes breast feeding compatibility easier. Latex smells and tastes of rubber, and can cause the baby to reject mum's breast
  • Can be sterilised using boiling water, steam or cold water method
  • Microwave resistant and dishwasher-proof
