As your baby grows: Newborns generally are most comfortable with a slow flow nipple, but as they get older a faster flow nipple may be better. You can keep using the same bottles, as long as there are no cracks in them. Wash with hot soapy water after each use and sterilize at least once a week if using regularly. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My baby is 7w5d.she used to drink 4-5oz/3hr.i did change e bottle nipple to size 2.since 3days ago,she will only tk 2oz/4hr.her body temp is normal.
Over feeding? : 2 -3oz is more than enough formula for a 2mo old baby, but 4-5oz is way too much for a baby this young. I suggest you discuss feeding amounts with your baby's doctor - much of this has to do with the baby's size, but clearly, 4-5 oz is not healthy, and should not be given at that volume until the baby is at least 3 or 4 months old.

Breast/bottle : This is not unusual. You may find that she will take the bottle more readily from someone else than from you. Let daddy or grandmother try! when she smells your milk, and you are giving her a bottle, she gets confused. Don't worry. Most babies will take a bottle when they are hungry enough and the breast is not available. ...Read more

Depends: New or old? One side or both? Any new changes in the breast, nipples included, should be evaluated by a physician and you need to make sure you stay current with your screenings. If it's not related to anything serious but bothers you enough, you may need surgery to fix it. Otherwise do like the beatles and "let it be". Make sure your doc sees it either way, though. ...Read more
Bottle nipple size: The answer is different for every baby, depending on how big s/he is and how fast s/he is growing. Usually it's pretty obvious that the baby is working very hard at sucking to get out the increase volume of milk that growing babies need. If the baby is sucking comfortably and emptying the bottle in the usual amount of time s/he takes, there is no need to change. ...Read more
If he/she is full: If your baby has a strong suck, can take 2-3 ounces in 10 to 15 minutes, and is full afterward, then that nipple works. You can spend a lot of money on a nipple, but in most cases, it's not necessary. Stick with the basic nipple and have some patience with feeding your baby. Experiment with new nipples if your baby is not feeding well with the present one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
