    Leo has been using the slow flow teats from day one but now hes taking forever to take his bottle and really messes around with his feeds or gets too tired to finish it. I had to use a different bottle the other day and it had a fast flow teat on it and he got on great with it. Took his bottle in better time and there was no messing around and brough his wind up great. But I had a look in Boots today and the fast flow teats say 6 months+ and the medium ones are 3 months+. So I dont know whether to buy fast or medium???? Would he be ok with the fast flow ones even though hes 4 months? But if i bought the medium ones I'd only be getting the fast ones in 2 months...

    Im confused. He took that fast flow bottle really well so do you think it would be ok?

    Even though you'd get stage 3 at 6 months nothing stopping him from carrying on using 2 if he likes it. Then switch to 3 when its time to replace the teats thats what i am planning on doing, going to next stage on teat replacement day.

    I'm gonna throw something else into the mix now....
    Abbie wasn't getting on with the slow flow ones either and i bought vari-flow so she could control how fast/slow she takes the milk. so far they have proved more than worth it!
