Happened with Carter he was on slow and he would take forever and struggle so much so i switched him to fast because my bottles didnt offer medium. Than he was dribbling like crazy so i tried medium and he didnt like those either guess hes just a pig lol. I would suggest going up a size it shouldnt take an hour to finish a bottle
Sounds like it could certainly be worth a try changing teats. Romilly has been on stage 2 since she was about 2 weeks old, on the advice of our mw. They've never caused her any problems. The way Alex is feeding sounds like how Romilly was before we swapped - sometimes felt like it was almost time to start feeding her again by the time she'd finished a bottle and been winded!
hi i have a 14 week old baby, hes feeding rouoghly 3-4 hours in day and night times vary, after having 7 oz of bottle he sometimes has he fists in his mouth and little moaning until i put his dummy in, then he starts to fall asleep, before can be winded, if i take bottle out between feeds to wind he crys unless has dummy in. im not sure whether he's teething as he at times is dribbling, and when i out finger in mouth he chews it. at moment hes only taking 4 oz then the 3oz after 1 hour ish or hes draining 7 oz. he has a chesty cough at the moment and finding it hard to bring wind up sometimes, or sometimes straight away he burps. and hes on size 1 teets tommy tippee, sometimes falling asleep at last 2 oz. do i up his teet size? do i start introducing solids slowly as hes hungry after 7 oz? whats the best advice as im struggling to know what to do. first baby! thanks very much
Tommee Tippee do a variflow teat so however hard the baby sucks the flow matches it. Maybe worth you trying that. I don't think weaning will help at such a young age just up his milk and feed him on demand.
