Why Minbie?

We passionately believe in supporting the mother-baby breastfeeding bond. To help you we have created the Minbie:

  • Protects a baby's natural instinctive breastfeeding technique - use Minbie first and only to avoid the harm of nipple-confusion
  • Encourages a proper, comfortable, anti-mastitis breastfeeding-latch
  • Supports natural breastfeeding - requiring a baby to work at the feed with Minbie's anti-colic & anti-reflux instinctive breastfeeding-motion
  • Minbie is made of premium-quality, German sourced, soft, flexible, BPA-free silicone
  • Minbie is breakthrough, unique, patented, multiple design award-winning and loved by a growing number of mothers - the instructions need to be followed.
How is Minbie better for breastfeeding than generic teats?

Use Minbie first and only when bottle-feeding to protect your baby's precious, natural, instinctive breastfeeding latch & motion. Generic teats train babies to feed differently and can quickly harm a baby's ability to breastfeed, resulting in the bottle taking-over.
(See Minbie homepage for the benefits)

How does Minbie help babies that can't be breastfed?

Minbie provides a high quality feeding experience that nurtures the baby's feeding stage. Minbie supports proper suckling development of the jaw-complex and digestion.

What size bottles does Minbie fit?

The Minbie is compatible with a number of standard wide-neck baby bottles (49.5 - 50.5mm outer neck diameter). The Minbie does not fit narrow-neck bottles or very wide bottles. We cannot guarantee a fit with other brands, and therefore recommend the use of the Minbie bottles: 210ml, 270ml BPA-free PP (polypropylene) bottle.

How to prevent leaks?

How long should the teats last for?

When can I introduce Minbie to my baby?
  • We recommend Minbie as the first and only bottle-teat for premature, full-term and older babies, so as to protect your baby's natural, instinctive breastfeeding technique
  • Breastfeed if possible for the first 6 months+
  • For breastfeeding mothers who need to go back to work - Minbie's familiar breastfeeding-latch & motion has helped a lot of breastfed babies to accept a bottle
  • For weaning, Minbie has helped many older breastfed babies to accept a bottle and begin to feed independently.
