Latex - The Resistant Natural Substance
NUK Latex Teats are taken from the rubber milk (latex) of the rubber tree and have a honey-yellow colour. Latex teats are warm and soft to the touch. They are extremely flexible and tear-resistant and therefore also well-suited for babies who have their first teeth.
With its natural origins, latex has a slight taste all of its own. Direct sunlight or edible fatsmake latex age and become porous more quickly.
When a latex teat becomes sticky, it is a natural sign that it should be replaced with a new one, usually after 1-2 months.
Can my child get a latex allergic reaction by using a natural rubber product?
It is very unlikely. However, protein is a naturally occurring substance in latex from the hevea brasiliensis tree. It helps preserve the material in a liquid state to allow manufacturers to work with it. When manufacturers process the material to produce the raw rubber products, much of the latex protein is leeched out. As a result, latex content is extremely low.
Latex allergy reactions vary in severity with individuals. If there is a known family history of latex allergy, or if you notice any symptoms that cause concern; or your child has had a previous reaction to any other rubber products, we suggest that you stop use immediately of this product and visit your medical practitioner. Help with early symptoms may prevent more serious effects.
An allergic reaction is normally not dangerous and the symptoms can include:
- Itchy, red, watery eyes
- Sneezing or runny nose
- Rash or hives
- Chest tightness
- Shortness of breath
- Special size for particularly delicate little mouths
- Soft & warm latex - yet tear resistant
- Extra soft & flexible shape helps reduce the risk of crooked teeth later
- Natural shape that is right for the jaw
- 2 per pack
- 0 - 2 years
- 6 - 18 months
