For the longest time Adelyn was using slow nipples because her suck was very powerful and she'd end up choking. But now it seems she's struggling with the slow nipples. She keeps getting air because she is trying to get more milk than the slow nipples will allow. Noticed this the last few days and tried her with a few medium nipples and the problem was gone! So I think we're going to stick to the medium nipples for now.

What flow nipples is your LO taking? And when do you plan on changing them over?

We're having problems bottle feeding Marcos right now. The slow flow frustrates him because he's not getting enough, but the medium flow is too fast and makes him choke.

Medium?

The two-hole variety, we may move up to the three, she seems to be getting frustrated with the two holes now.

We use slow flow nipples and will continue until he is off the bottle. I did this will my other 2 children too since they were breastfeed and Elliott is too. I never had a problem with the other 2 and hopefully I won't with Elliott.
