Breastfeeding is the No. 1 choice in PIGEON!

Creating the PIGEON Standard

For over 50 years, PIGEON has maintained a dedicated approach to the study of sucking behaviours in babies.  Step by step, we have established a solid foundation of research while gaining recognition in academic fields and amongst medical professionals and specialists.

Our comprehensive look at baby behaviours has enabled us to discover the 3 key factors of sucking - Attachment, Peristaltic Movement and Swallowing - and see the importance of their correct functioning and interconnectedness to safe and healthy sucking.

Peristaltic Movement

Ever wondered how babies suck? Sucking hollow on the upper jaw to receive the nipple, a baby uses his tongue to make and send pulsating movements from the front of the tongue to the back. This set of movement is known as the peristaltic movement.

Peristaltic motion is the smooth wave-like motion of a baby's tongue. A baby moves its tongue like a wave, rolling it front to back to draw milk (see Figures 1 to 4). The movement is encouraged as it is integral for the development of baby's jaw.

Air Ventilation System (AVS)

Peristaltic PLUS™ Nipple and Peristaltic Nipple ensures minimum air intake smoothly into baby's stomach during feeding.

Nipple Tested

We have done various tests for all our products based on our own PIGEON quality standard. Also, we have verified the safety of the PIGEON Peristaltic Nipple, having passed all stringent tests, such as monitoring, hygiene test, pulling test, milk-flow test, etc

Peristaltic PLUS™ Nipple


Peristaltic Nipple

PIGEON Peristaltic Nipple was designed based on advanced nursing research and study to provide the best for mothers and babies. Now PIGEON has extended its Peristaltic Nipple series with the addition of medium (M) and large (L) sizes to meet the myriad of needs of mothers and babies.

Teat section has an "accordion-like" portion that enables it to stretch in response to the peristaltic movement of the baby's tongue. At PIGEON, we believe that stretchability is the most important function of an artificial nipple in encouraging baby's natural suckling motion.

Ultra-Soft Silicone
The nipple's surface is very soft, yet it does not collapse easily. Made from thick ultra-soft silicone material, the nipple has similar elasticity to that of a mother's actual breast. The dome-like shape makes baby's mouth open naturally, and supports its mouth softly and fitting its lips gently.

By adding M and L sizes to the PIGEON Peristaltic Nipple product range, the softness of each nipple is approximately controlled to ensure the best performance at each developmental phase of your baby. Similarly, different hardness of silicone material is matched accordingly to the size of the nipple. Therefore, each size of nipple is appropriately shaped with the softness of the material.

  Choose from 4 nipple sizes to suit baby's development stage
