1 month old - teat size

Hi all

My 1 month old is using the dr brown bottles for formula. She is currently drinking 7 X 120ml bottles per 24 hours, which I would like to reduce the number of bottles and increasing the amount per feed. She usually wakes for one at 3am, then again at 6-7am, and roughly every 3 hours until her last bottle at 8-9pm.

I've noticed she starts falling asleep a lot by 90ml, the stirring again 10 minutes later for more, which she never used to do. Has anyone tried going up to the size 2 teats this early? I know it doesn't recommend this until 3 months... She does dribble using the current size 1 teats, but also makes a lot of hard sucking noises every now and then, so I'm not sure whether the teat is too slow now?

Also, I was wondering if anyone has any tricks or schedules/routines for upping the bottle to 150ml and reducing the number of bottles per day.

Thanks xx

Don't know but didn't want you to go unanswered. Hopefully this will bump for you smile.

Hi, we started our now 3 year old on the size 2 teats after a couple days of him being born, we found that after the hospital bottles flow he didn't really suck well on the 1 teats. I've recently had a little girl who will be 3 weeks on Tuesday an we've done the same and she feeds much better an doesn't give up as easy as she did with the 1 teats. Xx
