  • My son is still on the natural latch slow nipples and is eating off a spoon with no problems at all. I've never heard of switching from slow to fast nipples and I thought the fast nipples were for when you put cereal in the bottle and it's too thick for the slow nipples. If you haven't tried gas drops, they are all natural and wonderful. Good luck!!!

    During our 4 month pediatrician appointment, she said that we could start cereal UNTIL she found out that the babies were still using slow nipples. She said she'd like me to move them to fast nipples and make sure they're comfortable with them first. I guess it's to help them work on their swallowing reflex. I've tried with both twins to use the fast nipples but they HATE them. They will take a few drinks, spit the milk out, and start screaming. They gasp and choke and make a complete mess because they spit it out. The smallest twin gets horrible gas pains afterward and screams for like 10-15 minutes. He also spits up afterwards. They take the slow nipples perfectly. I've tried to put cereal in the bottle to thicken it up a bit but that doesn't help :( How important do you think it really is that they use the fast ones? Is there any way to get them to take the fast ones easier?

    I think it should be based on what they tell you they need. With Ella, who's nearly 5 months old, we've changed her teats as she's gotten older. This is because she collapses the teats when they start to flow too slow for her liking.

    If your babies are happy using the slower nipples & aren't getting frustrated with the time or the effort it takes for them to finish their bottles then I believe you shouldn't worry about it.

    You are their mum - at the end of the day you know what is best for them. People would tell me that Ella would prefer the bottle over the breast as the bottle would be too easy for her - but we still successfully combine breast & bottle!!

    As for solids - that's another thing you will know when's best. Have offered infant cereal, but Ella's not too keen; whereas another baby from our antenatal class is happily having solids once a day now. What works for one baby isn't necessarily going to work for another.

    Good luck and I hope you decide what you want to do, not what someone else tells you to do.

My 3 month old is on medium flow nipples and is able to handle it just fine. It actually helps her eat more. We made the switch early only because of her cystic fibrosis. Her enzyme powder we put in some of the formula would clog up the slow flow nipples. I say if she is fine on the slow flow and still eating well than don't worry about switching just yet.
