On my health visitor's advice, I tried my daughter on faster flow teats when she was 2 weeks old - didn't work. She downed her feed quickly but she invariably puked most of it back afterwards. I think their stomachs are so small and delicate at that age, they can't cope with too much milk in one go.

She stopped gulping so much after she got the hang of the whole feeding thing so my advice (based on my experience, others might be different) would be to wind your baby thoroughly during and after feeds and in time, the gulping should lessen.

yes think will do that - for some reason he keeps gulping loads

and then bringing it up through mouth and also nose - half hour later

need to keep winding and keep him upright
