There is a generally accepted nipple size classification. She is
consists of 3 categories: size A (from 0 to 6 months), size B (from
6 to 18 months), size C (from 18 months).

child growth. Of course the division of the nipple is very conditional.
The right choice of size should depend on the individual
physical characteristics of the newborn. If the crumb is less than its
peers, you should not give him a big dummy, otherwise he
