“I want to produce an artificial nipple which is very similar to mothers’ nipple”
– Yuichi Nakata
With no available research data and knowhow, Mr Nakata found his own unique methods to study the sucking mechanism of babies.
Mr. Nakata’s research data has contributed to the development of artificial teats. What Yuichi Nakata saw was the unique movements of the tongues of babies when they sucked milk. Scientifically named “Peristaltic Movements” much later, they formed the basis of all the bottles and nipples made in the PIGEON research centre. For over 5 decades, PIGEON has dedicated research capabilities towards the sucking behaviour of babies. Having established a solid foundation of research, PIGEON is recommended today by most top medical and academic professionals.
