    What the title says really. How do you know when you need to move up a teat size? LO is 4 wks old and does not appear to have any trouble at all quaffing his bottles down. Still using the size 1 teat at the moment but not sure when to change or what to look out for to indicate I need to change.

    Thanks

    xx

    We started using variflow teats when he was a couple of weeks old.. He was taking forever to take a bottle, falling asleep as he was taking so long & also the size 1 teats kept collapsing/inverting as he was sucking so hard xx

    I changed my LO from size 1 to 2 at 8 weeks. As he was taking bigger bottles he wouldn't finish the bottles, but still be hungry. So would want to feed again. I changed his teat size and he started finishing his bottles xx
