“Burston Blues” are Non Toxic and are handmade by us at Maroo Wildlife Refuge.
Unlike latex our Blues retain their shape and Feel.  Why have we made these Teats? - Well we wanted a Teat that felt closer to the mother’s natural teat. 
The colour may have you a bit worried but we trialled over 50 teats and not one kangaroo or other animal has rejected them.  All teats are hand-made so some variation will occur but will not affect the quality. Also some changes do take place as we are always on the go to make our products better.  
Putting the hole in:
-Use a long wooden skewer or matchstick, depending on your teat size, to support the inside of the Teat. Now use a Pin or large needle, depending on how much flow you require, to pierce the end of the teat. Cutting with Scissors is not recommended as you will end up with too large a hole.
-Don’t be scared to boil them. This does not affect their shape or the material.
-Soak in Milton’s solution if you wish.
Now leave to dry. There is no need to leave them in the Freezer. 
We recommend that the Teat is "Rolled off the Bottle" with the Flat of your thumb. Pulling the Teat from the shaft can result in it breaking.  The Teat will last much longer than Latex if care is taken.
