  • How do I know which teat to buy?
    If you are unsure which teat to buy please contact me and I will help you choose. Please note that your existing feeding bottles may have different neck sizes to those for which our teats are designed. Our teats are designed for glass bottles with an 18 or 20mm neck. If you use plastic bottles that have larger necks to feed kangaroos then the preferred teats are probably K1 and K3
  • How long will my order take to reach me?
    Australian orders generally arrive within a week. International orders can take up to 3 weeks and sometimes a little longer. If you require the delivery urgently you can use the Express Post option. Our freight rates are set by Australia Post.
  • Do you supply teats with holes?
    No, our standard teats are supplied without holes to allow for flexibility of different feeding demands. It is easy to make holes in the silicone teats using a fine hypodermic needle 20g or 21g or a toothpick. Push the needle up through the teat and out the top. Several small holes can be made if necessary. Practice on old teats. Do not use a hot needle with silicone teats For latex teats use a hot needle to make holes or a very small pair of sharp scissors. We can now supply teats with holes that allow a controlled flow rate. However there are wide variations in feeding patterns so you may still need to enlarge a hole for some animals.
  • How do I look after the teats I have purchased?
    Wash in hot soapy water and rinse. DO NOT boil or microwave Use a baby teat sterilising solution such as Milton and wash off well with hot water (pre-boiled) to rinse.
  • Which teats are best Latex or Silicone?
    Silicone teats are more expensive but are more durable. They have no taste or smell and are readily accepted by most animals. We only use food grade silicone prepared on stainless steel moulds Latex teats are less expensive but don't last as long. They have a taste of rubber and a slight smell. They are coated with cornflour to prevent them sticking together Please be aware that some people have latex sensitivity so a contact test response should be undertaken before regular use.
  • How do I make holes in teats?
    It is best to use a long blunt hypodermic 20 g or similar needle and push it through from the inside of the teat. Rest the feeding end of the teat on a chopping board or similar and the needle will cut a neat hole in the teat. We can supply the needles free of charge. Multiple holes may be needed for vigorous suckers. Alternatively use a tooth pick pushed up hard into the inside of the teat and snip the stretched material with scissors. .
