The LATCH Difference
Proper latch is achieved when mom’s nipple reaches all the way back to baby’s soft palate. The accordion-style nipple on LATCH stretches like the breast, helping baby latch easily and correctly.
Like the Breast
When breastfeeding, baby controls the flow of milk by applying pressure to the base of mom’s nipple. The LATCH bottle mimics mom by releasing more breast milk as baby pushes against the nipple’s base.
While feeding, the accordion-style nipple flexes as baby moves her head. This allows baby to maintain her latch, thus decreasing ingestion of air.
