Using a Burston Teat
MAKING A HOLE IN THE TEAT
Using a sharp toothpick, not a blunt one, put the toothpick inside the teat, when you get to the top, place the point in the middle of the teat and gently rotate the sharp end of the toothpick around until it goes through the Teat [Note: support the shaft of the Teat]. Continue to rotate the pick until you have the desired hole size.
It is not recommend to put the toothpick up into to the teat and just push through.
PUTTING TEAT ONTO THE BOTTLE
Make sure the Teat is thoroughly dried and your Hands are dry. Face the sucking end of teat towards you the place your index fingers inside the opening. Place your thumbs on the outside of the teat, with you index fingers, fold the teat over your thumb. Do not put any outward force on the teat just roll back. You should now have the base of the teat inside out over your thumbs. Place the teat on the top of the bottle, with your thumbs rested on the centre top of the bottle, using thumbs and index fingers push/roll the teat on the bottle.
We do not recommend you just grab and pull or stretch the teat base out when placing onto bottle.
TAKING TEAT OFF BOTTLE
With the flat of you thumb gently roll the teat off from the neck of the bottle.
Don't Pull the teat off from the top [Sucking End]
Don't Pull the teat off just above the neck
Don't Use your nail to lift base of teat from neck of bottle
CLEANING THE TEAT
You can boil the teats, soak in Miltons solution and wash in hot soapy water without affecting the teat.
We do not recommend you scrub teats with salt.
They do not need to be stored in the freezer.
