If the milk flow seems too slow, take a Pocket Scalpel (or other sharp knife) and enlarge the “X” slit in the end of the teat. Be careful! Do NOT cut the end too large or the milk will constantly leak out.
Cannot be used on soda pop bottles.
Do NOT leave empty bottles or bucket feeders in the orphan pen. Lambs and kids will chew on nipples (in an attempt to feed) and damage the teats. A habit that is not easily reversed.

Perfect for the cold milk system for babies!

Excellent acceptability and use for very young lambs. For best results only use for lambs younger than 1 month and one teat per lamb so they don't fight for them. They are nowhere near as sturdy as the red ones. I still strongly recommend for the youngest lambs to get them started on the bucket. It is well worth the effort/buckets/pens to get them started well and then move them on to the red ones when they are strong enough. A great low maintenance system once you get set up.

Best thing I ever discovered was the bucket feeding equipment at Premier 1. Saves lots of time and the kids grow well. These nipples are great. Even the young kids take to them.

These nipples work great on the bucket units and also fit on some plastic bottles for hand feeding. We use these instead of the Pritchard teats for supplementing. Lambs learn to use it as well as any other and they last a season or longer at our place.

Work great! The lambs take readily to them, no issues with leakage or stoppages. You do have to pull the ends open as the 'X' doesn't get cut 100% on all of them.
As for the fellow that had a problem, it sounds like he used them without the teat unit. No way they will work by just sticking the nipple in a hole in a bucket, they have to be used with the teat unit.
It helps to have a little soapy water when assembling everything.
