been using cow and gate stage 1 for about a month little 1 is 6 weeks to yay!!! been geting on totally fine then we had some really hot weather and he wasnt feeding as well and not sleeping great being a sod basically!! but weather has cooled alot and he is still only having a couple of oz sometimes which is unlike him before the hot weather he was doing 4 and a half 0z he still does it sometimes well anyway we have figured out that the teats are blocking up and that he must be giving up as he not getting it out! tried cleaning them within an inch of there life, pull bottle out unblock it then it blocks again so it must be the milk right????? looked up on internet and quite a few people mention cow and gate when talking about the teats blocking i want to switch to Aptimal see if that's better but was worried it might not be good for him anybody switched brands????? so it's long x

I'm from the states so I'm not familiar with those brands, but we did have to switch formulas with LO. Just do a little at a time, like 1/4 of the new brand and the rest the old brand. Then half and half until you're just using the new brand. That way it doesn't upset his tummy too much.
