Why are Avent nipples and pacifiers made of silicon instead of latex?

Updated on 2022-05-05

The advantages of Silicone compared to Latex:

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