My DD is 5 months and size 3 mam is a bit too fast for her too.
The difference is quite big between them when you put them under the tap.
I also have quite a slow feeder so i understand x
I just tried the 3 again but had to change back to a 2 as he was coughing and spluttering. Think il just have to stick with the long feeds until hes ready.
Theres a big difference between the 2 and 3.
It took ages for my daughter to be OK on size 3 MAM teats. They say from 4 months but she was much closer to 6 before I felt she was able to take the milk without gulping and was not as windy afterwards. I tried the switch twice before and had to move back to 2. Maybe give him a day or so but when she was ready for size 3 it was easy and she didn't have the milk running down the side of her face etc and no gulping xx
My ds will be 5months on friday and hes on size 2 mam bottles but he takes about 45 mins to feed. Hes got reflux and has comfort milk, gaviscon and carobel. Ive tried size 3 teat a couple of times and hes much quicker drinking it however he does bring more up with the size 3 teat and is also more restless after feeding. Do i need to just give him more time to adjust to the size 3. ? It also runs out of the side of his mouth as if its maybe too fast. Any advice appreciated.
