    Phoebe has been on teat flow 2 for a while now.
    She's teething at the moment so is slightly off her feeds and is taking a while to finish her bottles.
    I know teething is the reason but my OH KEEPS saying he thinks the teat isn't fast enough for her :roll:

    I personally think the teat is fine and it's just because she is teething, but I was just wondering at what stage do they go onto level 3 teats, does anyone know? xx

    We've always used variflo teats, found the numbered teats didn't match with her age/stage.

    Whenever you feel they need too really as each baby is different
    We're now on size 3 but they are a little too fast but the 2's are too slow but she's happier making mess drinking milk that not getting it quick enough

    Was thinking I may need to move rhea up to number 3 as she seems to b losing interest in her milk or liking to rest in the middle. It's up to u Hun could always give it a go and see ? Shut oh up that way !! Lol xxx

    Angel is on 2 and I tried her on 3 a couple of weeks ago and she didnt get on with them. Just trial and error really to find out what suits your baby I think :) hope it gets sorted soon hun :) xx.

    Hun sometimes it can take a few feeds for them to adapt. When I changed Will to level 2 it took about 3/4 feeds until he got used to them, he spluttered loads to start with xxx

    Ella has been on variflow since about 4 weeks old! she drinks the bottle at her own pace now and
    they also seem to help her bring her wind up easier xx
