Hello all.

I am a nanny for a lovely 11 month old. I work 24hrs 5 days so know his routine well and have been with him 4 months. He has always been slow to feed and when young struggled to bottle feed without getting frustrated.

Our issue now is he seems hungry at 6.30pm as he grabs the bottle and starts to drink but then appears to gulp and choke. He then screams and screams occassionally trying the bottle but refusing. If i pop his dummy in he calms and closes his eyes. My opinion is he may be too tired to take the flow and possibly switching to slow flow teat instead of fast flow for that feed may work?

Does anyone have any views on this? He needs this last feed to sleep through.

Many thanks.

i would switch to a slow teat for bedtime drink and see if this helps

Yeah, I'd try the slow flow one too. Let us know how you get on smile
